As you can see in Figure 2-6, the Raspberry Pi will now give you more information about the files and directories that were listed in Figure 2-5. This information includes the size of the file, the date it was created, the owner of the file and what kind of permission you have to access it. To move between directories or folders in the tree-like structure, you can use the cd (change directory) command. Try moving into the Desktop directory by typing cd Desktop at the prompt: pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd Desktop To move between directories or folders in the tree-like structure, you can use the cd (change directory) command.

It will only respond to a command when it is composed of a particular set of defined words that it already understands. These commands can be very specific and often need to be typed in a certain order to work. To delete your report, you must use a command that Raspberry Pi understands. doc If you learn these commands, you won’t be limited to using a GUI and you’ll be able to navigate file systems and program the computer by using simple text commands. This can sometimes be faster and more convenient than doing the same tasks in a GUI.
