Can you clarify your question a bit? What do you mean by "without showing erros [I assume that's meant to be 'error'] message"? –  mmyers Mar 25 '10 at 16:00
Please give us the exact command you are typing, and the exact output of the command, highlighting the error messages that you do not wish to see. –  davr Mar 25 '10 at 18:04

wc whatever 2>/dev/null
