I'm following along with this tutorial on how to use Sublime text editor . It gives instructions to enter the following command to enable opening of Sublime in the terminal.

ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text" /bin/subl

After creating that link, it says I should be able to do

subl .

to open all the files in a folder in Sublime. However, when I do it, it says

-bash: subl: command not found

My system says the file exists

 ln: /bin/subl: File exists

Any idea what I can do?

Try this. Create a new link to /usr/local/bin:

ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text" /usr/local/bin/subl
