I seem to recall (my Linux days were a long time ago) that when you are trying to set a variable - say, x - to a value - say, 4 - you simply type:
Shell is giving me the following error when I do that:
"x=4: Command Not Found".
All my research seems to indicate that simply typing "x=4" should be the right thing to do.
Any suggestions? Where exactly have I screwed up?
