Congratulations! You've learned five commands commonly used to navigate the filesystem from the command line. What can we generalize so far?
- The command line is a text interface for the computer's operating system. To access the command line, we use the terminal.
- A filesystem organizes a computer's files and directories into a tree structure. It starts with the root directory. Each parent directory can contain more child directories and files.
- From the command line, you can navigate through files and folders on your computer:
pwd outputs the name of the current working directory.
ls lists all files and directories in the working directory.
cd switches you into the directory you specify.
mkdir creates a new directory in the working directory.
touch creates a new file inside the working directory.
