Basic Linux Terminlogy
Back to SPARK 2014 page for critical systems
- By "Directory" under Linux we mean what is called under
However sometimes in Linux Distributions the word "Folder" is used as well.
- The home directory (called in the File manager "Home") is in Linux
denoted by "~".
- Subdirectories are separated in Linux by backslash "/".
For instance "~/bin" is the subdirectory bin of ~ where ~ denotes Home
So its from the file manager reached by using Home -> bin
