I am on MacOSX, using the iTerm and I'm very new at all of this. I am trying to prepare for installing bioinformatics programs, so I made new directories for "Scripts" and "Programs" and wanted to add them to the PATH.
This is what I did:
nano .bash_profile export PATH= "$PATH:$HOME/Scripts" PATH= "$PATH:$HOME/Programs" source .bash_profile
-bash: export: `/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/opt/X11/bin:/Users/Tori/Scripts': not a valid identifier
I tried re-entering the profile using nano and it said
-bash: nano: command not found so I closed out that window, reopened a new session, and it came up with the same "not a valid identifier" message and now won't recognize any commands.
What did I mess up and how do I fix it?
