When I want to edit a file from within a terminal window, the edit command is not recognised.
I want it to open my editor (sublime text editor 2) and took the following steps:
Created a symbolic link on my path:
ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" ~/bin/subl
specified it as my default editor:
export EDITOR='subl -w'
subl starts the editor up, so that worked fine. I can also see that the environment variable is set correctly.
But I stil get the “-bash: edit: command not found” error when trying to edit a file by entering
edit ~/.bashrc for example.
Edit is not a bash built-in command.
This means that the shell searches for a binary called
edit in your
PATH or an alias or a function called edit.
