For those of us who had (still have) trouble remembering the somewhat
terse nature of linux commands:-/
'ls' -> The command. LiSt the contents of a directory.
' -' -> space dash -> get ready for some one letter modifiers.
'l' -> Long -> Shows you huge amounts of information (permissions,
owners, size, and when last modified.)
'd' - >Directory -> If an argument is a directory it only lists its
name not its contents.
' ~olpc/Activities/Scratch.activity' -> note the space -> The argument
which tells the command which directory to look at.
The tilde is a shortcut to point at you 'home' directory.
