You don't need to use a command to view the file. There's another way.

Definitely could use some help as well. I'm trying my best right now, and I'm not looking for a handout, but I'm trying linux commands and I don't know the syntax to implement. Any help would be awesome, apparently 5 pages of people getting help isn't enough for me.

So, I'm a little comfused. I run linux as my main OS so I know most of the commands. Did a little research and learned the commnads for perl. Not one combintation, I tried ~20 different ways, with not one doing what it's supposed to. I still get a white screen with reference to cal.pl instead of... you get the point I hope. Don't want to test the boundries with what I put here.

Yup, but you should already know that it is. But of course the command alone isn't enough.

Reread the thread, there should be enough hints already and check your spelling if English is your first language (if not, don't worry about it). As you run Linux, run the cal command and see what happens, then run another command. Try to do this as efficient as possible. You might even want to recreate the perl script to test it, though it isn't necessary. Think how the input gets used for the output.

How did you view the password files in the previous basic missions?

I was able to figure this out, but I came here after words to see if I did it the intended way, which I did not. I may have to redo it so I can learn the technique for times that my method won't work.

Actually, hacking is about finding the possibilities not intended by the creator. So if you really did this in a completely novel way, that's very good, provided you did this without help of any tools.
