Question Asking about some basic doubts regarding directories and files.


It's about 3 months now that I have been using Linux and have done alot of stuff since then and learned alot and made alot of mistakes .

Question 1 - Why do we actually need an SSH , do we really use in our daily life and tasks ?

Question 2 - What's the major difference between \ and \\ while entering into a directory ?

In a nutshell, you need it to access remote servers. Main features: The SSH protocol allows you to log on in various ways, including password-less logon with cryptographic keys, or with certificates. You can use it to run commands on a remote system, copy files from and to remote systems, and launch an interactive shell on a remote system. Another hot feature is adding encryption to protocols that don't feature encryption, such as VNC.

The shell uses the backslash as an escape character. This means that a character entered after the backslash loses any special meaning it might have. For example, the dollar sign has a special meaning in the shell, but \$ means simply a dollar sign. Likewise, \\ means simply a backslash. What this has to do with directories I am not sure; can you provide examples?

The typos in your profile are cute, but you look more professional if you fix them
