To this I seem to have found an answer by checking how stat.s and ls.s
work. 'stat foo' will check whether '../foo' (using /-notation) exists
and will then print the status.
'ls foo' will check whether '../foo' is a directory and will then open
foo and list it. It will default to .. if no argument is given.
This to me suggests that .. (confusingly) refers to the current
. does not seem to have any conventional meaning.
To the first question I still have no answer.
