4. Making Folders
Again experiment yours Creative powers
Making a test Directory like:
[See here again how “mkdir” is an Abbreviation for “Making Directory“].
How you should have already understood, $HOME and ‘~‘ are both synonymous of your’s Home Folder.
And the Home Directory is where your User Contents are Stored by Default.
Moreover, to enhance your Memorization and Fun I rightly Use some Metaphoric term. So here you can Immagine a directory like a Room into your Home :)
Try Making Multiple Directories at once with:
mkdir $HOME/bedroom $HOME/bathroom $HOME/garden
Try to use the “ls” Command to Check your creative Work:)
Finally, use the ‘touch‘ Command to Make a New Empty File:
And how you could already have perceived, in my creative Examples I make use of the following Mnemonic Linking:
Directory -> Spatial Entity
File -> Thing
And so in the Previous Command to an “Empty File” corresponds a natively “Empty Thing” like a “box”, or otherwise you may take it as a simple Label/Name ;)
