 Everything between the quotes was a command to be typed as shown. You
will use the program called `file' to tell you about the program files
you reported were giving you problems.

 This is probably the root of your problem. The backslash tells the
shell that the command is continuing (so you should see the prompt
chnage from '$' to '>'). The backslash needs to be the last key on the
line, do NOT type any spaces after it before you hit the 'enter' key.

worse". So I smiled, and lo, things became worse.
