    Default metagoofil.py: command not found

    I was messing around with the different tools to familiarize myself with what is here and i went to see what metagoofil is under backtrack -> info gathering -> searchengine.
    after going in it gave me an example:
    Example: metagoofil.py -d microsoft.com -l 20 -f all -o micro.html -t micro-files

    so i copied and pasted and it came up with this:
    /pentest/enumeration/google/metagoofil# metagoofil.py -d microsoft.com -l 20 -f all -o micro.html -t micro-files
    bash: metagoofil.py: command not found

    After that I ls the dir and came up with this:
    /pentest/enumeration/google/metagoofil# ls
    COPYING LICENSES README metagoofil.py

    I can see that it is there so I am confused. Also I have no idea what this tool does but I thought I would actually learn a bit doing the example, but apparently not.

    In advance, thank you for your support.

    Not a bug.

    Time to learn some Linux basics I think. Read up on how to run programs in Linux that are not in the path...

    Hint. Try one of the following methods to run the script.

    With /pentest/enumeration/google/metagoofil/ as the present working directory:
    Code:
    ./metagoofil.py
    With any directory as the present working directory:
    Code:
    /pentest/enumeration/google/metagoofil/metagoofil.py

    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Code:
    cat README.txt
    Can also be pretty helpful from time to time. If something tells you to read it, you read it.
