Yes, that’s correct, as long as ruby1.9 is in your path.
Also you can say cd ~/Desktop/programs rather than three separate cds.
And don’t miss tab completion, if you’re using bash.
I am using bash… what is “tab completion” and how do I do it?
Start typing enough of the directory name, and by pressing tab bash will
finish it for you – if what you have is enough to identify it uniquely.
For example, if you are in /home/me and you want to get to
scripts/ruby/tests, try “cd scr” don’t press return, press tab and scr
will expand to scripts, then “/ru” and do the same thing, then “/te” tab
and you’ll have
now you can hit return, and all you actually typed was cd
Hopefully that is clear enough…a lot of CLI (and GUI) apps use tab
completion (eg, google).
