Hi there! Just wondering why my answer of: "sass input.scss output.css" isn't correct? Thanks!

Sorry - this is my first time asking a question and I didn't realise that it's not linked to the quiz question!

Complete the command to tells Sass to compile Sass files in an scss directory and output a stylesheet inside a 'css' directory:

I wrote for the command line: "sass input.scss output.css"

Hi Grace Marsh

Personally I did find the question a bit unclear and couldn't find a direct reference to this in the videos. I did find a side note in the previous video to the quiz at about the 1:55 mark.
The error I got when trying your attempt is what led to an answer. You're on the right track, but just need to simplify your command a bit. All you need is the folder name of the sass files and the folder name of the css files separated by a colon, so ...

scss:css

Hope that helps.
Keep coding! :) :dizzy:
