Can't add exercism location to $PATH variable

I am trying to install the CLI and when it is time to add exercism to the $PATH variable with this line of code echo 'export PATH=~/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bash_profile on the terminal it says “zsh: permission denied: /Users/ /.bash_profile”

echo $HOME

That is likely the directory, not /Users/ where that file would exist.

The permission is denied since the file does not exist.

It sounds like you’re using zsh but trying to edit a bash config file.

Thanks for pointing that out, sometimes the simplest solutions are the easiest to overlook :D

I got it to work in the end but I do appreciate the effort it took for you to help
