I made a mistake that is probably really, really easy to fix—so easy to fix that I can’t find the answer anywhere and you’re probably going to laugh at it. Here goes.
I was super excited that I made my first directory (I have NO coding experience at all) and it was actually THERE in the temp folder when I left the PowerShell to look at it last night! I never thought I could do something like that! I started playing with it this morning, and I tried to remember the command for pwd instead of checking the book—I accidentally combined them in my head and typed p ~ into the shell.
It took me awhile to figure out why I couldn’t get home! I still can’t get out and I tried to find it in the book, but I can’t find the command and it keeps building more paths. I hunted down a shell syntax bash reference manual and as far as I can tell, I made a pipeline but I don’t know how to escape the pipeline.
Here’s a screenshot of my mistake, where you can see that I learned a cool thing (wow a pipe? I haven’t even left the appendix yet…).
Am I breaking my computer by doing this? How do I delete this ugliness?
Thanks, and this is really fun, I just want to get back to home so I can learn enough to get myself out of these situations. Here’s the code and my 20-something attempts to leave the path.
