Creating and using directories

The mkdir command creates new directories. For example, mkdir coursework creates a directory named coursework in the current working directory. Once this directory is created, the command cd coursework changes the working directory one level down, to the newly created directory. To navigate back up one level, to the parent directory of the current working directory, use cd .. which uses the .. indicator for the parent of the current working directory. To remove an empty directory, employ the rmdir command. The pwd command prints the current working directory name, to let you know where you are.
