COMP 328 Lab 2 Working with UNIX Directories COMP 328 Lab 2 Working with UNIX Directories ls , cd , chmod , the file system, and more NOTATION: A "fully qualified path name" is the complete route of a file, from the root directory to its final location. The character that separates directories in a UNIX path name is opposite to that used in Windows; UNIX uses a forward slash (/) instead of Window’s back-slash (\). So, the directory "local" under the directory "usr" is "/usr/local" in UNIX, but would be "\usr\local" in Windows. BACKGROUND: UNIX organizes it's filing system as an upside down tree. The "root" of the tree (sort of the "start" of the disk) is called "/" (slash). In this directory (i.e., folder), are other directories. This varies some by the computer. For example, / of MAC OS X looks like: Applications System Folder Applications (Mac OS 9) Temporary Items Desktop TheVolumeSettingsFolder Desktop (Mac OS 9) Trash Desktop DB User Guides and Information Desktop DF Users Desktop Folder Volumes Developer automount Documents bin Elite 12ppm Folder cores Installer Log File dev Installer Logs etc InterLok Support Install Log mach InterLok Support READ ME.pdf mach.sym Late Breaking News mach_kernel Library private Network sbin Previous Systems tmp Shutdown Check usr System var While / of a Solaris system, looks like: TT_DB devices lib platform var bin etc lost+found proc vol cdrom export mnt sbin xfn core home net tmp dev kernel opt usr Rakocy/Volkers 5/8/2011 1:02 a5/p5 Page 1 of 5
