INVESTIGATION 1: ABSOLUTE / RELATIVE / RELATIVE-TO-HOME PATHNAMES
:You may think that issuing Linux file management commands are better using '''relative''' or<br>'''relative-to-home''' pathnames instead of '''absolute''' pathnames, but that is not always true.
:Since the '''current ''' directory location was your '''home''' directory, then it makes sense that using to use ''relative '' or ''relative-to-home '' pathnames are more efficient. On the other hand, what if we <u>changed </u> the location to a different directory? Then perhaps, using an absolute pathname would be preferable.
:When performing the next series of steps, refer to the '''tree diagram''' on the right. It is '''HIGHLY RECOMMENDED'''<br>to always refer to a tree diagram when issuing Linux using different pathnames. Learning to reference a tree diagram on a '''quiz''', '''midterm''' or '''final exam''' can help to '''prevent errors and loss of marks!'''
