I have been thinking about this for quite sometime now, how to find all the executables on the linux system. One of the way is to do a \”ls\” on all the directories in the PATH variable. But that will not list the executables that are outside of the PATH. So, I wrote this one liner :
rpm -qal |agrep \”bin\\/\” > all_execs
This will list all the files in the Linux system in bin or sbin directory and that should be pretty much all the binaries in the system.
