Im stuck on step 4 of cp 1


#1

im stuck because it says that i have to 'Navigate up one directory from drama/historical/ to drama/.' but i cant do that!! :frowning:


#2

Have you tried

pwd  ==>output will be=> drama/historical
cd ..
pwd ==output => drama
ls ==>output => the files in the drama-directory

It might happen that you lose the $-prompt...
if that happens, it is the indication that the emulated-environment is blocked....
you will then have to leave the environment
and start with a fresh-working-place

1)When we copy cleopatra.txt we copy all filles in directory, why?
2)when we copy i wrote drama/historical/, when i enter wrote pws result was drama/historical (all ok);
but when i write cd drama result was : No much file or directory.Why?
3) I tried wrote cd result was : /home/ccuser afret i wrote cd drama/ but i has got the same error that was in 2). Why?


#4

Commands used:
cd ==> change-directory
pwd => print working directory

cd /home/ccuser
pwd ==>output /home/ccuser
cd drama
pwd ==>output /home/ccuser/drama
cd historical
pwd ==>output /home/ccuser/drama/historical
cd .. 
pwd ==>output /home/ccuser/drama
cd ..
pwd ==>output /home/ccuser

what is the mean of Change directories into historical/.

List all files and directories in the working directory. You should see a new copy of ray.txt and notorious.txt in this directory.**\

Use "cd historical/" then ls -l. You should see it.
