I have a lab I am doing for a Linux Operating class. The question I am stumped on is:
For the following questions, only use the
cpcommand to copy files.
You should currently be inside your
lab07directory. Create a subdirectory inside this directory called ones and copy (working directory is
lab07) all the files in the
/labs/data/filenames/that end with a
9into this new ones directory. I.e. copy the files
file.2, etc., but not the files
file.21, etc. Write the full command to copy these files into this new ones directory using only relative paths.
Now, I can do the problem using an absolute path, the command is:
cp /labs/data/filenames/file.[1-9] /lab07/ones
So from this, what would be the relative path?
I've been trying different commands for HOURS and I have no idea. I get the concept behind relative paths, it's just when I actually try to do it. I can't get it right!
We are using bash/shell, on a server. I am using Xquartz11
