@bernchamp20,

Given a directory-tree

       root
         |
         +--users
              |
              +--comedy
                   |
                   +--theater

cd root/users/comedy ==> position on directory
pwd ==> what is the current working directory
[output] root/users/comedy

       root
         |
         +--users
              |
              +--comedy   <<<=====
                   |
                   +--theater

cd theater ==> change directory
pwd ==> view current working directory

       root
         |
         +--users

How to navigate up one directory from drama/historical/ to drama/?
I'm stuck on wildcards 4
#3

that doesn't help man. what we are looking at is this

pwd
/home/ccuser/workspace/blog
cd 2015
pwd
/home/ccuser/workspace/blog/2015
cd ..
pwd
it wants it changed to /2015/feb this one seems impossible no matter what I type.


#4

i am confused:

pwd
/home/ccuser/workspace/blog
cd 2015
pwd
/home/ccuser/workspace/blog/2015
cd ..
pwd

Your last pwd outputs:

/home/ccuser/workspace/blog

right? cd .. will take you back to the parent directory, while if you are in 2015 you want to go to feb directory, to do this: cd directoryname
where directoryname is the name of the directory

@gigablaster46400, @stetim94,
Maybe you should extend your operation with a ls
like

cd something
pwd
ls -al
