      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.
