    Messed Up Terminal Bash Please Help!
    Hey everyone. I did something very noob like that I need help with. I was trying to run the Prolog compiler, gprolog, from GNU through terminal and could not get it to work. I found an article about adding executables to the system path and tried doing something described in the comments. The exact command that I entered was:

    cat > ~/.profile
    I should have done a little more research before entering this but I did. After that came up, it allowed me to enter text and of course I entered a random set of characters. I didn't realize that these changed would stay after I restarted. Now all my terminal displays is:

    Last login: Tue Oct 26 14:33:43 on ttys000
    -bash: adsfasdfasdfhelp: command not found
    [Process completed]
    It will not allow me to enter any commands or type anything at all. And yes, I deleted the file but the problem still persists.

    Problem solved! I searched for my .profile using Onyx and edited it. Now everything works fine.
