FURTHER EXERCISES 180823

Exercise1

Explain what these two commands do by executing them and seeing what happens:

$cd ~
$cd - 

Exercise2

The grandparent directory: Can you find TWO ways to move into the grandparent directory in a single command? That is, how can you move from
/Users/erin/Documents/Photos/Selfies/
to
/Users/erin/Documents/
by executing cd just once? Find TWO ways to do this. One way should use an absolute path and the other should use a relative path.

Exercise3

If I have several directories within my Photos directory, like so: /Users/erin/Documents/Photos/Instagram/
/Users/erin/Documents/Photos/NikonPics/
/Users/erin/Documents/Photos/PanoShots/
/Users/erin/Documents/Photos/Selfies/

How move from within the Selfies folder to the Instagram folder using one cd command that uses a relative path?

Exercise4

Up to this point, we have used ls without any arguments. However, ls can take an argument. See what happens when you give ls the following types of arguments:

  1. a directory specified by a relative path
  2. a directory specified by an absolute path
  3. a file
