How to...

Postby Acid_1 » Sat Dec 01, 2007 4:14 am

Ok, i have a few questions with terminal, as lots of stuff can be done through that with ease :mrgreen:

How to:

Copy an entire folder to a destination

Create a new folder (as it's easier to do in terminal w/ those place you can't create folders w/o being root)

Move an entire folder

Move a single file.

Knowing these would make life a lot easier. lol. thx guys. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :shock:

In linux, the copy command is cp, move is mv. To create a new folder, use mkdir. For a usage/syntax explanation, type the command followed by a space & --help. For a fairly complete listing of commands see: http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/linux/cmd/

Thank you so very much. I was looking for a list, but couldn't find one.
