I appreciate that response and welcomed that command as I would have
done that had I know. However I tried it in both regular terminal and
root terminal
This is response regular terminal
allen at debian:~$ sudo parted /dev/sda print

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

[sudo] password for allen:
allen is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.
allen at debian:~$
This from root terminal with sudo and without
debian:/home/allen# sudo parted /dev/sda print
sudo: parted: command not found
debian:/home/allen# parted/dev/sda print
bash: parted/dev/sda: No such file or directory
