Look out!  That's the bad version of the command, where it will wipe out
/etc/motd because you are telling enscript to print *into* that file.
Of course, if you correct the command to "enscript -p- /etc/motd" and
try it again without putting something in the now-blank /etc/motd, you
will be printing an empty file.
