Because it's the CLI that you're using, it parses the command line
before it passes it onto the command.  If it can do something with
what's typed into it, it does; then the output of that goes to the
command.

-- 
[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
2.6.27.12-78.2.8.fc9.i686

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
