Directory Help

I am a newbie to ruby on rails. I am using the pragmatic programmers
agile development with rails book. I am at the beginning, i have
installed MySQL and ruby on rails but the book asks me to “create a
directory”. Being a person who has only ever done a basic ruby trial
(at tryruby.hobix.com) and learnt extremely basic HTML is there anyone
out there who can help me and give me instructions as how to “create a
directory”. Your help would be much appreciated. Sorry to bother all
the advanced rails developers who have taken the time to read this but i
am new to ruby and rails and i need some guidance.

Hope the community can help

well, you haven’t even told us what kind of system you’re on. Try
doing a search in the documentation for your system with the words
‘create directory’. The command ‘mkdir’ will probably be what you’re
looking for.

which OS you’re running: Windows, Linux, MacOS, … The book is telling
you to use the operating system to create a directory. You don’t need
to use Ruby to do that. In Linux/unix, do ‘mkdir dirname’ in a
terminal. In Windows, create it using Explorer or do ‘mkdir dirname’ in
a console window.

In case it helps, a directory is what Windows calls a Folder.
