rmdir double forwardslash?
Hey guys, as the name suggests, I'm VERY new to Linux.
I've been working with it through TestOut, and am planning on taking the Linux+ exam in a few weeks. As such, I've been taking some practice exams. I ran across this question from BrainDump, and I don't quite get it. The question is:
Bob accidentally created the subdirectory \bobsdir in his home directory. He tried using rmdir \bobsfile only to recieve the error message, "No such file or directory."Which of the following commands will remove the directory?
A: rmdir '~bob/\bobsdir'
B: rmdir "~bob/\bobsdir"
C: rmdir ~bob/\'bobsdir'
D: rmdir ~bob/\bobsdir (my answer choice)
E: rmdir ~bob/\\bobsdir (correct answer)
I'm not understanding why E is correct. Any explanation would be helpful, thanks!
