I've returned to CS50 work after a work-required hiatus. I'm working on pset6 but am having a problem with the location of the dictionaries. I've done update50. I've verified that $HOME and echo ~ yield the same result as recommended in this answer. But when I look into /home/cs50/pset6, all I find are the files huff and puff. If I look into /home/cs50/pset5, there I find the dictionaries. But they should be in pset6 directory. Not sure what is going on here.

Here is my terminal session -

jharvard@appliance (/home/cs50/pset6): ls  
huff puff 

jharvard@appliance (/home/cs50/pset6): cd /home/cs50/pset5

jharvard@appliance (/home/cs50/pset5): ls

  • Did you try executing update50? – kzidane Nov 12 '14 at 19:15
  • yes, I did that. – rl777 Nov 12 '14 at 19:20
  • I would assume that the /home/cs50 space is a space which i can read but not affect in any way. And thus nothing I've done or haven't done should be the reason I'm seeing files which should be in /home/cs50/pset6 in /home/cs50/pset5 instead. – rl777 Nov 12 '14 at 21:07

All set. Without realizing it, I was using Appliance 17 instead of 19, which I already have installed. Picked the wrong menu item.
