file navigation


Dear all,

Another easy question, how to navigate a folder called "simon job" from root in the terminal command prompt?
i know is using cd command, but, since it has a space between the name, then how?
i try to google to look for the answer but then, eventually, i turn up coming here and ask...

Thanks.

I think this will work:
Code:
cd simon\ job

either put the name in quotation marks, or put a \ before the space. bash's autocompletion (type sim and press tab) will automatically do it for you
