I program I was using to out put some files apparently did not understand the short cut "~" (directory) very well and has done some trickery that has me confused.
Rather than put the files where I would expect them (/home/me) it has a made a folder in it's subdirectory called "~". (someprogram/~)
drwxr-xr-x 3 me users 4096 Jan 30 09:34 ~
If I cd into it I get back to /home/me
Is this just a hardlink? I imagine if I try to delete it will will delete my home folder. How can I safely remove it and not delete everything?
