Brace and path substitution: Linux: Shells and Processes
Brace and path substitution: Linux: Shells and Processes

Bash path substitution allows expanding the path with special characters like the tilde. It allows us to expand the path to include the home directory. We can use it to fill out to any users home directory too. You can use ~+ and ~- characters to expand to the current directory and our previous directory. We can use the directory stack to any path stored in it.
