Do I use the Terminal program listed in the Utilities App?
Do I enter the lines of code one at a time or do I copy and paste the whole program?
One at at a time.
Is there anything special I need to do to exit the program when I have completed the line by line code input or the copy/paste input?

I finally inputed the Code for the /tmp program into my computer after encountering a few problems; 1) mispelled a word ( after five lines) and hit return before I noticed it. I thought it would be better to restart over, so I exited Terminal and relaunched. 2) I kept getting syntax error, when I typed in line 1 so combined lines 1 and 2 together separated the two lines with a space between the arrows, < >and received a > after typing in the complete 2nd line. From there I typed line by line. to the end. I exited the Terminal program and restarted as you recommended ( You did not say to exit the Terminal program,though).
Is there a way to check if the file is actually in the computer, because, I am still unable to highlight, copy or paste and I am wondering if I missed a step that I actually should have done but did not that I should have done it.

Wel, the folder should be at root of the drive...
Show Hidden Files 1.0...
Hidden Way is a toggle for hidden files view in Finder...
Show hidden files in OSX Finder
Open the Terminal and type or copy/paste:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true
Reverting to the default of NOT showing hidden files:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false
*Restart or Force Quit Finder required to take effect.*
Finder Force Quit, or restart required to take effect.

Please correct me if I am wrong. I am only asking because of my inexperience
"Wel, the folder should be at root of the drive"..
No File named Show Hidden Files1.0 show in root
showed option to show hidden files
this site just showed where you could find the Hidden File, I think
"defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true" Used to show files
"defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false" Used to Hide files
file to be typed in Terminal App.. Should there be< at beginning and > at end end of each line of code?
*Restart or Force Quit Finder required to take effect.
When typing the code, I exited Terminal before restarting. Could this be the reason that there is no Hidden Files listed?
Site I think is in Swedish. I have a tough enough tme being 3rd Genration Chinese .

Oh sorry, the folder "tmp" is at root, & may be hidden or invisable, in which case those apps or terminal commands can make visable.

"For which link?
www.burobjorn.nl/log/?p=96 was listed several panes above

You are doing the best you can and I really appreciate it, but at least I am learning to do something I never knew before. I'm just sorry you have to work with me. Like I said before, you're working with an individual a few brain cells short f a full load.
After inputting defaults write com .apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles bool true I performed the restart without exiting out of Terminal, the computer booted to a darrellcoe pane (which I am assuming is the root)The pane listed the following documents:
I saw no reference to /tmp or hidden files. I'm thinking the code I typed in did not take. If you want me to retype the code, just tell me

I am unable to locate APPs on My HD, meaning I can't access Terminal to see if /tmp is located in my system. Of xourse you may access my computer remotely. But I am unable to find the sight you are speaking of.

Read your response from the Recent Activity when I clicked on your name. Yes my computer is connected to a modem.
I'm up, but if you would like to stat fresh tomorrow morning, I'm up for that too, your call
Did you see, after I put in the code to allow the hidden Files to be shown, the APP Folder no longer appears when I click the Hard Drive from my desktop
