Entering more than one command

To enter several commands on the one command line, use a ; (semicolon) to seperate each one from the next. For example:

   cd ..; ls -l

This command line contains two commands. The first, cd .. changes the current directory to the parent directory. The second, ls -l produces a long listing of the contents of the curent directory.

If necessary you can continue the commands onto another line.
