unix basic commands
Posted on 2011-10-10
I'm starting to learn linux/unix basic commands.
I have a text file called science, I have saved it to /vol/examples/tutorial/
In the exercise I am doing I have already created a folder called /unixstuff in my home folder
I want to copy a the file science to my unixstuff folder, the advised command is
This gets me to the unixstuff folder I then type
cp /vol/examples/tutorial/science.txt .
I keep getting no such file or directory. I can drill down to /vol/examples/tutorial and can see the file science, I created the file with text editor so I presume the extension is correct, I tried it also witout the extension.
I'm sure its something simple I am missing?
