This question already has an answer here:
- What is the “~/” directory? 1 answer
When I first log in to Unix on my Mac, I usually see a
~ after my username in the command line.
However, if I look at the apps contained in that directory
~/Applications they are not all of my applications, but rather just some of my chrome apps.
cd to my
/ directory, and then go to
/Applications there I see all of my applications, so I am wondering what is the difference?
Also, if I go to
~/MY-USERNAME/Applications I see the same as if I just I were just in
~. So what is the difference?
Lastly, how come I can
cd into my
USERNAME directory endlessly? (see screen shot, "startec" is my username)
