Following on from my previous question ([echo $PATH results in /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/bin:/bin:/bin:/bin:/bin:) I have been commenting in bash_profile everything out and then I closed the terminal, opened it again. Result: now after the first character I type it says
When I try to add another command, the terminal is non-responsive. Why is it doing this?
I solved the problem by: open in finder the .bash_profile [pressed Command + Shift + > to show hidden files.], reversed the commenting. Terminal works again. Still, I need to know, why?
