Adding a ls -a example would give the opportunity to explain that . points to the current directory and .. points to the parent directory and will help students understand how to navigate the file system with
cd ..

Adding a ls -a example

I think we had one and as far as I check we have.

The special directory .. doesn't usually show up when we run ls. If we want
to display it, we can give ls the -a flag:

$ ls -F -a

{: .language-bash}

./   .bash_profile  data/       north-pacific-gyre/  pizza.cfg  thesis/
../  creatures/     molecules/  notes.txt            solar.pdf  writing/

{: .output}

-a stands for "show all";

@solevillar Thanks for the issue. Could you expand what you want to change? If the text that we have on episode 02 is good enough, could you close this issue?
