5/11 step 3- Command Line Environment


#1

I’m on step 3 of 5/11 in the Environment portion of Command Line.

https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-the-command-line/lessons/environment/exercises/aliases-ii?action=lesson_resume

I’ve tried “source”, “source hy”, “source ll” as well as other variations of anything involving the source command, but I have no clue what they’re asking for.

The error message reads “Type the command to source the bash profile.”

The instructions:

All of my code has been correct so far but I just don’t know how to use the source command properly.

Thanks,
Anna

we made changes to .bash_profile, and to make this changes work without logging out and logging in again, we can use source to read the file again and apply the changes, but then we need to source the file, so the command you get is source filename
