Practicing loops: "node" command not working
I've installed Node.js (Mac user) and tried to run the program through Terminal and the build-in Terminal of Visual Studio Code but I'm always getting this error message after entering "node forLoops.js":
internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:583 throw err; ^ Error: Cannot find module '/Users/stevefrenzel/forLoops.js' at Function.Module._resolveFilename (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:581:15) at Function.Module._load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:507:25) at Function.Module.runMain (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:742:12) at startup (internal/bootstrap/node.js:283:19) at bootstrapNodeJSCore (internal/bootstrap/node.js:743:3)
Can anyone help?
Quick question since I can't see where the files are laid out on your computer. Have you verified that you're in the same directory as forLoops.js? From what I can tell, it looks like your terminal is in your users home folder:
If you downloaded the project files, the forLoops.js file is probably located somewhere in your Downloads folder.
Let me know if that doesn't fix it! -Brandon
