I am trying to copy a file from inside a bunch of folders to the current directory I am in. Playing around with the terminal, I see that when I specify the entire location it works:
joostin@ubuntu:~$ cp ~/unixstuff/vol/examples/tutorial/science.txt .
But when I go into the unixstuff folder and try to bring it into the current directly I get an error. Any idea what is going on?
joostin@ubuntu:~$ cd unixstuff joostin@ubuntu:~/unixstuff$ cp /vol/examples/tutorial/science.txt . cp: cannot stat ‘/vol/examples/tutorial/science.txt’: No such file or directory
