## Introduction to the Command Line

Prior to learning GDAL or scripting it is important to learn the Command Line and how to use commands from the command prompt.

### 3. Drives and Directories

#### 3.4. Delete directories

Now we're going to delete the directory called Peter.

1. First move one directory up, so you're back in the root of the C-Drive. Type:
cd .. <ENTER>

2. Remove the directory Peter by typing:
rd Peter <ENTER>

rd means "remove directory".

3. List the directory to check if Peter has been removed.

Note that you can only remove a directory in this way if it is empty!
