cd I

$ cd 2015
  1. cd stands for "change directory". Just as you would click on a folder in Windows Explorer or Finder, cd switches you into the directory you specify. In other words, cd changes the working directory.
  2. The directory we change into is 2015. When a file, directory or program is passed into a command, it is called an argument. Here the 2015 directory is an argument for the cd command.

The cd command takes a directory name as an argument, and switches into that directory.

Make sure you are in the directory /home/ccuser/workspace/blog/2015 by using the command pwd.
