        I think you mean that '.' refers to the current
        directory and '..' refers to its parent directory.
        When you're working form the command line, they make
        for convenient shorthand.

        For example, I can change director to a grand
        parent with:

        cd ..\..

        That's especially nice in a batch file when you
        need to move to a relative directory. You'd have
        more experience with '.' and '..' if you played
        more with the Command Prompt or if you were old.

        BTW, the *nix people are laughing at us.
