Now try to List the Directory’s Contents
To List the Directory you are in execute:
The “.” is optional and meaning the Location you are in.
[See how the Command “ls” is just an Abbreviation for Listing!]
The default Location each time you open a New Terminal Window is the Home Folder.
So the Output of the Command should be very similar to this:
Desktop/ Downloads/ Pictures/ tmp/ Documents/ Music/ Templates/ Videos/
Here the Entities with a Trailing Slash are Directories.
Again to List the Downloads Folder inside on your Home, run:
Where “$HOME” is an Environment Variable always containing your User’s Home Path.
Next to List the Main System’s Root Directory:
(The Root of What? Of the System’s Directory Tree. The Trunk, all the other Directories are Branches.)
So possibly to List the “usr” Directory:
[Again an Abbreviation for “User System Resources“]:
Finally, to List the “bin” Branch:
[Again an Abbreviation for “Binaries” (The Executables)]
