Re: [orca-list] making directories

The tilde (~) is shorthand for you home directory. so mkdir ~/mail would create a directory named mail in your home directory.

Hi Folks,
On the page:
it gives instructions about setting up GetMail.
The instructions refer to making some folders, like a mail folder as
mkdir ~/mail
So what I don't understand, is that supposed to be in the home directory, or in the root directory, as I made 
a folder in both the root /.getmail and
because I wasn't sure what was meant by ~/
Thanks for any assistance.
