I need some help with Leatn the command line 10.grepI

the instructions say to type “grep -R Arctic /home/ccuser/workspace/geography” however when I do this I receive the error message “Type the command after the shell prompt.”

I have tried several variations on the command but none of them seem to work so far. Is this a bug?

Hi @rlthoburn

The exercise is teaching you how to search for Arctic in all the files in the /home/ccuser/workspace/geography. You are getting an error because you have been searching for something else. Check your typing:

That would be my problem. Thank you so much. I should check my spelling more carefully.
