Ancar Co., Ltd. holds a Linux study session once a week. I've been interested in writing programs so far, and I've been doing it mainly, so I'm missing out on basic knowledge of Linux .. I'm studying. For that reason, the content of the study session is for beginners.
This time, we held a study session on the theme of "file operations", so I would like to take up the parts that I learned especially about file operations.
Special directory symbols are provided to facilitate path specification.
I usually use
.., etc. frequently.
I especially learned about the
~ username options. This wasn't used at all on a daily basis.
** Move directory **
#Move by absolute specification $ cd /home/onukichi/qiita/test1/ $ pwd /home/onukichi/qiita/test1 #Move to your home directory.[cd ~]But the same $ cd $ pwd /home/onukichi #Move to the previous directory. This is insanely convenient, why didn't I use it? # [cd ~-]But the same # cd -When, the destination directory is displayed. $ cd - /home/onukichi/qiita/test1 $ pwd /home/onukichi/qiita/test1 #Designated user(onukichi)Go to your home directory $ cd ~onukichi $ pwd /home/onukichi
I used to use
cat to casually display the contents of a file, but I can do various things by adding options.
$ cat test1 I'm Onukichi. $ cat test2 I'm Kid. #You can also concatenate files. Yeah, can you do that?..Never used #Create test3 by concatenating test1 and test2 into files $ cat test1 test2 > test3 #Display the contents of test3 $ cat test3 I'm Onukichi. I'm Kid. # 「-Display with line number in "n option" $ cat -n test3 1 I'm Onukichi. 2 I'm Kid.
I used to use the
mv command a lot, but I found it convenient to be able to rename files and move multiple files as I moved.
$ ls test1 test2 test3 #Move one file to qiita directory, well this is basic $ mv test1 ../../qiita/ #Yeah, it's been moved properly $ ls /home/onukichi/qiita/ test1 #You can change the name as you move. I didn't know this.. $ mv test2 ../../qiita/test2-1 #Move and check if it has been renamed. $ ls /home/onukichi/qiita/ test1 test2-1 #Move multiple files, which is also very convenient..！ $ mv test1 test2-1 ../../qiita/text
The commands I picked up were the ones I used frequently on a daily basis, but I learned that by specifying options, I can operate files more conveniently.
I can't use any other commands as options, so I'd like to use them consciously.
