Hey t_kilvertkelvinhall_,

I got through this exercise with the following:

Step 1: type (w/o the " " 's): nano ~/.bash_profile

Step 2: In nano, type: alias pd="pwd"
2A: Hit 'Control - O' (the letter)
2B: Hit 'Enter'
2C: Hit 'Control - X'
2D Type in 'clear'

Step 3: Type in 'source ~/.bash_profile

Step 4: Type 'pd'

That should get you through this exercise. NOTE: You will need to
remember the 'Control - X' and 'Control - O' to get through the next few
steps. I'm still on 5. Aliases II at 83%, so look for my new thread
for help on that if you get past it, thanks and I hope that helps.

The above steps are perfectly right. Ensure that the nano editor is blank with only alias pd="pwd" typed in it. In case anything else exists, remove it and proceed it should work. Worked for me. Or follow the steps after resetting the exercise.


#7

I followed the steps above and I still stuck... I cannot get to the third step. But i know that's for sure the solutions, it is stated in the instructions... Sorry for my poor English tho.


#8

It works now, I followed your instruction to leave the nano editor in blank...Thanks~
