What exactly do these two Unix commands do? I’m guessing the “mv” might mean move, but it’s not clear where things are moved to.
mv /usr/local/texlive ~
mv ~/texlive /usr/local
Also, there is a space in the first command between “/texlive" and “~", and there is a space in the middle of the second command, between “/texlive" and “/usr". Are these two spaces supposed to be there?
