Testing on the Bash track

When trying to run the bats program I get a
-bash: bats: command not found error.

Any ideas what I need to do to resolve. I installed bats as per the instructions. See attached image for results of that.

Is /home/Colin/bin in your $PATH?
Is /home/Colin/bin/bats executable?

After adding the directory to my PATH and running: bats raindrops.bats
/home/Colin/bin/bats: line 2: $‘\r’: command not found
: invalid option name line 3: set: pipefail

  1. How did you install bats?
  2. How are you running bats?

\r is a carriage return which should not exist in that file and is often the result of a copy/paste or running a file intended for Windows.

On a Mac, I’d recommend installing both bash and bats with Homebrew.

To fix bats: sed -i '' 's/\r$//' ~/bin/bats

In the testing on the Bash track section I followed the instructions:

For Windows (MINGW64/Cygwin)
$ git clone https://github.com/bats-core/bats-core.git
$ cd bats-core
$ ./install.sh $HOME```

Does no further comments or questions from Isaac or Glenn mean no further suggestions as to how to resolve the problem I have with running the bash testing locally (other than to update my system) ?

Or can I supply any other information that may help?

If yes to first and no to second let me know and I will persist with making submissions with the Editor instead even if it is not my preferred option.

In my case I have an old Lenovo Thinkpad Edge with Windows 7 and Cygwin installed. bats is not a package available in Cygwin so I just followed the Exercism instructions with the git clone…
