Command not found error
When I used the following code:
# make a list to hold our items shopping_list =  # print out instructions on how to use the app print("What should we pick up at the store?") print("Enter DONE to quit the app.") # ask for new items while True: new_item = ("> ") # be able to quit the app if new_item == 'DONE': break # add new items to our list shopping_list.append(new_item) # print out the list print("Here's your list:") for item in shopping_list: print(item)
I kept getting a bash: (whatever item I typed in) : command not found error. Please advise, thank you!
Hi Steven/ Sigurd
I am working on the shopping list program under the Python Basics course. The name of the file that contains this code is shopping_list.py.

You didn't show the command you were using, but to start this program from the command line, I would expect you to enter:
I was using workspaces instead of command line.
It would be treehouse:~/workspace$ python shopping_list.py.
Sorry, total newbie here.
