Possible Error in Instructions


#1

I realize that there is a "Report Bug" link on the course itself, but when I click the link it simply takes me back to the top of the instructions. Which could be a bug, or just my computer doing strange things.

Step seven of the ecosystem project instructs you to:

In one command, pipe the ls -l command to the head command. Then redirect the standard output of the head command to list1.txt.

Once you complete the above step, use cat to view the contents of list1.txt.

However, the hint is:

ls -la | head > list1.txt
cat list1.txt

Step eight of the instructions tell you to:

In one command, pipe the standard output of the ls -la command to the head command, then append the standard output to list1.txt, then pipe the standard output to the wc command.

Once you complete the above step, use cat to view the contents of list1.txt.

However, the hint is:

ls -l | head >> list1.txt | wc
cat list1.txt

Are the commands within the hints reversed or am I simply looking at it wrong?
