Having trouble
Authored by: soulproperty on Jul 15, '01 11:47:59PM

I'll begin by saying that I'm completely new to UNIX... I was proficient in DOS many years ago, but that's neither here nor there. That being said, here's my problem. I've followed the directions to use the pre-compiled program, but I can only get so far. I had no trouble when I entered "sudo mv deco /usr/local/bin/deco" However when I try to change directories in the next step I can't do it. It seems that on my computer "bin" is a file and not a directory so it won't allow me inside. I'm not quite sure what I could have done to turn a directory into a file, but it seems I've done something. Any help figuring this out would be great. Thanks!
