    Default Need help finding a file

    I'm very new to linux and am messing with making a word list with crunch. I made the list I just dont know how to access it. I'm used to windows and just finding the folder it was saved in, but I don't know how to get to the directory that crunch saved the word list in which is /pentest/passwords/crunch. How would I get this file? or move it to the desktop? or save it to the desktop?

    man = manual command to learn about commands in linux. man man for more info
    man locate
    man find
    man mv
    man cp
    Those should be typed in the terminal. They will get you all you need.

    Thanks for your help. I hate when I do this, but I actually saw that thread after I made the post and found everything I need. Since I am so new to linux I learned that linux is all about being self reliant. Thanks for the reply and feel free to delete this thread if it's not applicable to the forum.

    Further, if you ran crunch from within the crunch directory, chances are thats where your created file is..

    /pentest/passwords/crunch

    I'd suggest the "which" command in addition to those that Archangel-Amael listed.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
