Stuck on cp1 5/10


I cant understand how to use the cp command to change directory and if I do cd it throws back an error


You definitely do not use the cp (copy) command to change directory.

You are probably not giving it a command that it understands. What is the terminal telling you when you try?


I'm also stuck here. I'm typing cd - to move back one directory to drama, where it says to go, but it's not completing the task. I'm not sure what it's looking for.


Instead of

cd -

you should be using

cd ..


be careful of spacing

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


Thank you! This helped a lot. I struggled with this exercise and got it to work because of you. Thank you!


cd ..drama/historical/drama/

see if that works for you.
