im sorry for not clarifying this properly
as stated earlier im a beginner in this and this is actually my first post
in the book using this command :
he is trying to copy /etc/passwd file in a new directory named "playground"
[me@linuxbox playground]$ cp /etc/passwd .
so i wanted to ask the meaning of period symbol at the end of the command and why it is imp
and when i tried doing the same thing without using period it gave me this reply in my terminal :
cp: missing destination file operand after ‘/etc/passwd’
ansh@ansh-Lenovo-G580:~/playground$ cp /etc/passwd
Try 'cp --help' for more information.
now am i using the code tags properly ?
