There is no such Windows command - I have not seen this.

What are you logging into? It does look like a Linux / UNIX command.

This is *nix, but even in windows, the basics would be wrong.

The ROOT of the file system is / in *nix.  In windows it's x:\

If you cd /suu in *nix you're changing to /suu

Then you list with dir (which is almost certainly an alias to ls with some switches) and what you're seeing is /suu/app (that COULD be a file OR a directory)

But then you type CD /app which means /app, not /suu/app.

You can change into it by cd /suu/app
Or by typing . (which means CURRENT directory) then /app - specifically
cd ./app

Open in new window

or
cd /suu/app

Open in new window

or
 cd /suu     (go into topmost subdirectory)
 cd app      (go into next directory (on step deeper into the tree)

cat  /suu/app/Ver/ABB

or:

cd  /suu/app/Ver
cat ABB

(to show content of file ABB)
