Re: cd command

For some internal folders Windows does not always show the actual folder path. Document folder can sometimes be that way.  Try:

In windows explorer, click at the top where you see

Dieser PC > Dokumente > Steve

The text should change to the actual folder path (beginning with c:\ ...)

You should be able to copy that path, and it octave type cd and then right click and paste the exact path.

Alternatively, in the Octave GUI you can use the folder tree in the upper left to navigate to your folder, and it will have the same effect as the CD command.

Dear Octave,

I am a complete begineer with Octave. I want to change directory in Octave to a directory on my PC that, in Windows Explorer, that is shown in the address line of Windows Explorer as:

Dieser PC > Dokumente > Steve

I have tried all sorts of combininations (e.g. cd Dieser PC>Dokumente>Steve, cd Dieser PC\Dokumente\Steve; cd C:\Dokumente\Steve, etc.) all of which return error messages. 

Is anyone please able to let me know what the correct cd command is to get Octave to work with files in this directory?

Many thanks, in advance, and best regards,
Steve Callander
