3) Your First Redirect


The terminal isn't showing anything except what I input. For instance, if I type cat hello.txt, shouldn't it show the contents of hello.txt? It does not. Thanks.


I am having the same issue with #4. Now I'm fairly certain something is supposed to show up in the terminal apart from what I have typed.


Yes, it should. You should see this (assuming you have a hello.txt file, with the word Hello in it, in your working directory):

$ cat hello.txt                                                                     


Is there a way to fix it? (Should I just refresh the window? Login & logout?)


If you ls, do you see the hello.txt file in the list?

Any errors?

You can close the Bash window and open it again:
