You are wrong. 'rm' (meaning /bin/rm) is an executable program. Shell
commands are builtin procedures such as 'cd', 'eval', etc. Unix Shells
have worked this way since the beginning.

In Bash, if you want to know if a command is builtin, use 'type':

$ type rm
rm is /bin/rm
$ type cd
cd is a shell builtin
$ type type
type is a shell builtin
