✨Let's explore some background on the terminal🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️....
What is the terminal?
Terminal is an application that lets you interact with your computer.You usually give instructions to your computer through clicking around in applications or typing keys to make
Terminal lets you do many of the same things; it’s just
more direct. You can give clear, structured orders to your computer using the terminal.
You just have to be patient and willing to try them!
"Where am I?" in my computer
When you first launch Terminal, you'll likely have an empty window with not much going on. My Terminal window looks like this, but yours is probably a different color or set of text on the left (which is fine!)
I see a simple dollar sign and a blinking cursor, but you might see the name of your computer too or other symbols:
*Run this command *
In your computer, you can go pretty much anywhere you want. First, though, you must know the destinations available to you.
On the command line, type the following command (ls , which is short for list), and press the Enter key on your keyboard.
*Run this command *
Going to destinations
Now that you've revealed possible directories (folders) available to you, you can move around them using a different command:cd which is short for "change directory," plus the name of the folder where you want to move.
For example, let's say I want to change locations in my system and move into the "Music" folder. This was listed as one of the options in the output from our ls command. I'd type:
Here's what my Terminal looks like after running cd Music:
It's now time to create a folder within your system.
Yes, you could just do this via Finder or whatever tool you use to browse and create files now. However, there are advantages to doing this via the terminal, especially if you want to get more into programming!
How does one go about creating a folder in Terminal? Time for a new command!
Use the command mkdir to create a directory. mkdir is short for "make directory." Specify the name of the directory (folder) you want to create just after it. If I wanted to create a folder called new-folder , I would run:
if you want to move file in the same path or another directory
mv fileName /temp/fileName
if you want to cope file in the same path or another directory
cp fileName newfileName
if you want to remove file in the same path or another directory
if you want to remove folders in the same path or another directory
