If I type cdAdTab (or enough letters to be unique) it will autocomplete to
$ cd Adventure/
and I can just press Return . For short names it might not look like much, but
if you have a long directory name like RumpelstiltskinReincarnationSpellPlugin , typing
RuTab begins to look mighty appealing.
Copy and Paste
Sometimes you might want to copy a bit of text and paste it at the command line.
For instance, you might want to copy a line from this topic and paste it in.
Copy and paste at the command line can be a little different from copying in an
application like Mail or a web browser. You still click and drag the mouse to select
text to begin with.
On Linux, you can use Ctrl - C to copy and Ctrl - V to paste in most applications. At the
command line, you may need to add a Shift key, so copy would be Ctrl - Shift - C .
On Mac you use D C and D V to copy and paste.
On Windows the command-line window is slightly different.
First, you need to enable QuickEdit. Right-click the top bar of the command window
and select Properties. On the Options tab, in the Edit Options section, check
QuickEdit Mode to turn it on.
To use: after selecting text, you need to press Enter to copy, then right-click or Ctrl - V
That's just for the command prompt window. Everywhere else on the system (your
editor, etc.) it's Ctrl - C and Ctrl - V as usual.
Try This Yourself
Let's make some directories and files using the command line. You're going
to make your own copy of a plugin, with directories and all.
Start off in your Desktop directory (make sure you're there by typing pwd ) and
make a new directory called myplugins using the mkdir command.
$ cd Desktop
$ mkdir myplugins
