Use `init` to create a Cargo package in the current folder

To set up a new Cargo package you probably reach
cargo new first. However, this operation requires you to supply a path.
If you need to create a Cargo package in an already existing directory you should be using
cargo init instead. Which can set up a package in the current directory.
$ cd folder $ cargo init Created binary (application) package
