Where am I?

This is the first question you should ask if you want to know a lot about your system and how to use it. Fortunately there is a command that can tell you what you need to know. As soon as you get a terminal window open you can type the command:

bash$ pwd

This should respond back with the path your current working directory. The pwd command stands for Print Working Directory.
