    Creating Directory Page 42

    I am trying to create a directory (page 42 of Build your own ROR Application)
    and the command to use is $ create shovell but when I put this command in the Ruby Console I get: rails shovell '$' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    Im sure its something very simple. If anyone has encountered this or knows what Im doing wrong please let me know. Thank you.

    People use the $-sign to indicate that the text next to it should be typed on the command line: you shouldn't type the $. Some OSs type the $ for you to indicate that you can type a command.

    So just type: create shovell

    Shouldn't it be "rails shovell"
