I’m trying to use my new command line knowledge in the real world, installing open source software using the command line. The command ‘…/’ which we learned is supposed to cd to the parent directory, never works in either git bash or windows powershell. In powersehll get the error message “…/ : The term ‘…/’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the
spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.”
in git bash I get the error message “bash: …/: Is a directory”
If I write out the name of the parent directory, it works in both terminals. What am I missing?
