Recently I came upon a new discovery in bash shell that commands which expect input <paths> as parameters like ls, rm works even if you type multiple front slashes
works even if we type it as
ls /foo/////bar///file or to my surprise
even ///foo/bar/file.txt works. Its a strange behaviour to me as I wonder why it happened. Could anyone explain it more deeply??...
