You create too many disincentives to give you knowledge.

What does this have to do with Google?

If you had executed 'yum provides /bin/rm' you would have had your own
proof that the 'rm' command is part of coreutils - NOT bash. It is NOT a
bash command. Anyone who suggests that is a bash command is wrong. It is
a core utility that is installed not as part of bash but as part of the
coreutils package. It can be used by any command shell. It does not have
any extra powers or usage in bash as it does in any other command shell.
