comment Tried to mv folder, now having trouble finding folder
It was just a shorthand way of showing my user home directory. Anyways, the above command worked - thanks for the help!

So would mv /Downloads/ ~/ bring Blah back to my home directory? If so, would it overwrite my user$/Downloads/ folder because of its new name?

Sorry for ignorance. I mean user$/Downloads/.

Yes, the /Downloads folder existed... it's where I originally moved Blah out of (to home directory). So now the contents of /Downloads have been removed in place of Blah?

You might be curious to see my answer below--someone on Super User suggested two header files that are definitely on the right track. +1'ed you anyways.

It certainly is old school: the book is from the mid 90's. The dated nature of the book is well compensated for by technical excellence, though. In fact, there are not so infrequent references to PDP-11's, so you are in the right ballpark with your assumption that it is an old school UNIX file. That being said, there has to be some sort of description for what I am seeking--the description of a stack frame. And that is something I am having difficulty finding.

@schaiba what system what would be? And what it refers to? x86 Ubuntu 12.10, and it refers to the stack frame, as my question says. Sorry, I don't understand what you are asking...!

@vonbrand en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stack_frame#Structure should give a good idea. The exact structure varies between implementations, though, and I want to know what it looks like on my implementation.

Oops--thought I could delete this. I have the same question posted on Super User. If I get an answer there I will link it, since it may be helpful. Sorry for double post!

comment Error when trying to install valgrind on Ubuntu 10.04
@jordanm I guess I am confused how I have mixed distributions after merely updating/upgrading aptitude on BT5? Sorry again, just trying to learn.

comment Error when trying to install valgrind on Ubuntu 10.04
@jordanm I am surprised 1) because that command seemed to mostly update the applications that BT is known for purveying, and 2) because I believe the only source that is enabled for aptitude update etc is from backtrack.com/etc. Sorry to bother you with more questions, but I really do appreciate the help... Surely BT allows updates, especially of the aforementioned app's... is there a better way to do it? Also, and more importantly, is there a way to determine the status of my current build... i.e. what I should do from here?
