    Odd response to terminal PWD command
    Hi there. Im new to terminal in my Mac book pro (osx 10.6.8) and a bit scared of terminal. SO I typed the basic pwd command in Terminal I get:
    kaushers-iphoneocuments mycomputername$

    I cant find any referance to kaushers-iphone online.
    I was expecting something like h
    460db012:~ mycomputername$

    Can anyone cast any light on this?

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    You obviously have a directory named kaushers-iphone in ~/Documents.

    The first line is where you are: /Users/mycomputername/Documents
    The second line is your prompt. Don't know why there is a reference to iphone. Check your dot files.
    .bashrc, .bash_profile
    MIne just shows my name and where I happen to be: craig@zinger:~/Downloads$
