Sass problems

Im having problems getting started with Sass. I have it installed (when entering 'sass -v' into terminal I get back 'Sass 3.3.13 (Maptastic Maple)'), but when I try to test out the basic file by entering 'sass test.scss' I get back 'No such file or directory - test.scss Use --trace for backtrace.' I checked to make sure I have the file saved correctly and that Im typing everything right, but I cant figure it out.

Any idea what Im doing wrong?

You might not be in the same working directory as your file. Try using the cd command (if you're on a Mac or Linux) to get to it, like this:

cd /Directory/of/Your/File/Here
