Experts,

I have a hardware appliance that runs FreeBSD.

Suppose I drill into a directory like this:

shell
cd /flash/folder1

then I need to see what other directories are in folder1 so I type:

l-ls

now I see other directories and want to go into folder1a

Is there a way I can just go into folder1a from where I'm at? I've been hitting the up arrow and appending /folder1a

If the structure is
/flash/folder1/folder1a

and you are in /flash/folder1

then you can simply type
cd folder1a

to reach that folder.

cd stands for "change directory"

Other helpful commands:
cd .. will take you to the previous folder (so to /flash if you are in /flash/folder1)
cd / will take you to the root dir
