- [Instructor] If you've been working with computers…for any amount of time, you are probably familiar…with the idea of Files and Folders.…Files are collections of information that represent…photos, documents, source code, databases…and all kinds of other things.…They are the basic unit of data storage…we work with an a graphical environment.…That's still pretty much the same in the Command line…environment as well.…There are two commands I want to point out…but not did too deeply into.…These are called file and stat.…Both of these commands can take a look at a file…and learn some things about it.…
File will generally be able to tell what kind of file…you're asking about.…If a file's name isn't clear…or if it doesn't have an extension,…sometimes it can be tricky to figure out…what exactly it is.…Using file, will give you some insight into…whether something is an archive or an executable file…or say, a text file or other kind of document.…Stat, on the other-hand, tells you some extended…information about a file.…
