Stuck on cp step 4


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


Is this the step that you are stuck on?

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


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


What is the hint telling you to do?


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


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


I tried that and it didnt work


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


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


.. means "parent"

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


be careful of spacing

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