I'm going to expand on this one a little, because it's helpful. To cd to your home directory (your own little "corner of the file system", where all your personal files go), run 'cd' (without the quotes...) with no arguments. The ~ character is expanded by the shell to mean "path to my home directory". So, typing 'cd ~' would also take me to my home dir. Also, 'cd ~/music' would take me to the music directory in my home directory, if I've got one. Recall that 'pwd' prints the current working directory: An example: # pwd /usr/home/mac # ls Maildir public_html storage # cd /usr/local # pwd /usr/local # cd ~/storage # pwd /usr/home/mac/storage # ls video # cd # pwd /usr/home/mac # ls Maildir public_html storage (where '#' is my prompt) --Mac -- Julian "Mac" Mason [EMAIL PROTECTED] Computer Science '06 (909)-607-3129 Harvey Mudd College _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
