I seem to be following the instructions and am not getting an error message but my little green box doesn’t get ticked…? please help


#3

There are three checkmarks in that exercise. Which one are you referring to?

The last one is to run a command which causes something to happen, did it?

Since most of it is about editing a file, what is the content of that file if you read it again from the file system?


#4

When working on the exercise, I follow the directions and type:

alias pd=“pwd” CtrlO
file1 CtrlX
clear

but it wont check off the green box. What am I doing wrong? Nothing in the nano exercise seems to work.
