comment Why wouldn't `which` command work for `cd`? Can't find the executable `cd` too!
Much better than the currently accepted answer- this explains why cd is a shell builtin.

comment What is the right way to exit the interactive CLI of the command “rev”?
@rajagenupula No, your solution is simply wrong. Backgrounding the process is very definitely not what the OP was asking for, and your answer is misleading.

@EliahKagan The graphics problem never happens in anything which isn't 2D, and is almost certainly not the cause of the overwrite, as this behavior is unique to this specific command. In addition, Video card: ... is not part of the output, and the formatting made that clear until you changed it.

@EliahKagan I added the information you requested. Also, thanks for the user-friendly instructions, but I'm okay without this level of detail :D
