Chapter 10. Common Unix Shell Commands: ... > Basic Tiger Filesystem Navigation

Basic Tiger Filesystem Navigation

The most basic commands for dealing with the Unix filesystem are those for moving around the filesystem (changing that “somewhere” that the shell always is) and for listing the contents of directories (finding out what's in the same location as the shell or in some other directory). Before you start moving around, however, it's a good idea to be able to find out where you are.

Finding Your Current Location: pwd

The pwd command (print working directory) prints the full path to the current working directory—the location where you are at the moment in this particular shell.
