Cannot execute Git exercise 5 step 5

Now that changes made to scene-2.txt have been booted out of the staging area, you’re ready to commit. From the terminal, make a commit to save the Larry/Laertes name swap in hamlet.

How to do this? thx


Unable to figure this one out too. I tried $ git commit “name swap” but got the following message

“error: pathspec ‘name swap’ did not match any file(s) k
nown to git”

I passed, try $ git commit -m “hamlet”
