Stuck on Linux, 79%, Nano 1-6


#1

Hi everyone,

Currently I'm stuck on Nano. My problem is two fold: first I'm having trouble understanding the purpose for Nano within the Linux/unix command/shell environment?
Also I can't get overcome Nano 2-6, it's the one where you add alias hy="history"

what should I do?


#2

Are you talking about the bash on codecademy?


#3

Yes: ~/.bash_profile?


#4

Nano is a text editor, incredibly useful, particularly in an environment where settings are usually stored in text files. Vim and Emacs are far more powerful but it's rather difficult for a beginner to figure out how to do just about anything in either of them.

Many commands come with a manual page which you can access with the man command, for example:

$ man man
