Stuck on cp step 4


#1

I don't understand how to do step 4 in cp.


#2

Is this the step that you are stuck on?

Navigate up one directory from drama/historical/ to drama/.


#3

I'm stuck on that one. And the hint doesn't help. :cry:


#4

What is the hint telling you to do?


#5

it takes me to the very first part of the lesson.


#6

oh snap i got it! I did "cd ..." and it worked


#7

I tried that and it didnt work


#8

I did "cd .." and it worked, but why?


#9

It works because in the first lesson you page up (in directory) using cd ..


#10

.. means "parent"

The directory above the one you are now is the parent.


#11

be careful of spacing

"cd .." works.
"cd . ." does not work.
