Additional note on saving file in Nano #610
In going through 4 - Tracking Changes, I hit a snag after typing my first line in Nano. The lesson says:
"Type the text below into the mars.txt file:
Cold and dry, but everything is my favorite color
It's not explicit that you have to save and exit the file in order to run the next command. I'm happy to submit a pull request to fix it, if it's not too pedantic!
Using a command-line text editor, like Nano, it's impossible to get the prompt
When teaching this lesson, I'm usually slow and careful to say, "I've opened nano to edit mars.txt... Now I'm typing in some details... then pressing -- look along the bottom, it's Ctrl+X to exit, then Y to save... Press enter to keep the file name... Now we're back to the terminal."
