Thanks for the correction.

That's actually /usr/sbin/powerd  (sbin vs bin)

Nice work.  Thanks.

One of the quirks about the XO is the lack of man pages.

Is there an obvious/simple way to discover that the documentation for X is in 
the executable itself so that which X, more/vi $X will tell me what I'm 
looking for?

I suppose it's worth a try  to assume that it's a script rather than a binary 
blob and see if more/vi works.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
