Stuck on Alias step 3 in Bash Profile Module


#1

Hi, I've read and tried some solutions to this problem but none have worked. I'll state the problem below for clarity.
I'm stuck on the step below:

I've opened nano by: nano ~/.bash_profile
Typed in under the welcome string "alias pd= "pwd"
Saved under the name ~/.bash_profile, exited and cleared.

I've tried calling cat ~/.bash_profile and then source ~/.bash_profile but nothing has worked out.

Please help!

alias only supports the format: name=replacement
what you wrote doesn't match that (compare to what's in the instructions) so no alias is created


#3

Thanks for the reply, but still don't see how my code doesn't much. What should I have typed in line 2 instead?


#4

Same as what is in the instructions. Compare.
can you tell the two versions part at all? If so they are different. I can tell them apart, so can you. You just need to look. There are about 10 characters to compare.

Ok ye I guess it was the spacing
