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.

5. Copy, move, rename & delete files

5.2. Move and rename files

Now we're going to move newlist.txt to the directory John.

1. First go back to the root of the C-drive.

2. Type:
move newlist.txt John <ENTER>

2. Go to the subdirectory John and check the directory listing.

3. Because it is a bit confusing to have a copy of newlist.txt in subdirectory John, we're going to rename it:
rename newlist.txt listjohn.txt <ENTER>

4. Check the directory listing again.

5. Save the directory listing to a file called dirjohn.lst
