Is there a way to open the directory I'm currently inside of, within a Terminal window?

On a Windows machine, I know that I can open the current directory in Windows Explorer by using the command : explorer ., and it will then pop open an Explorer window.

Is there a way to do this with a Mac? I want to download an audio file, and put it inside of a directory where I'm making Java code.


Yes, just do open .. The open command also works for files, opening them in their default app.
