  Learning the Mac OS X Terminal: Part 1
Subject:   cd and directory names

Hello:


OS 10.2.3


First time Terminal user.


The ls and pwd commands work but I'm having trouble with cd.


In my Users folder there's the standard Pictures folder.
In that folder I created a folder /directory called General Pictures.


I can use the cd command to get to Pictures but when I'm at


[localhost:/] myname%


I type


cd /Pictures/General Pictures


and I get back


cd: Too many arguments


I've tried a number of ways of writing the command but I've been unable to get to the general Pictures folder from within Terminal


What am I missing?


Thanks
