I have an older iMac which has been used to evaluate "many" different types of CLI software, some were installed to evaluate the possibility of integrating with ongoing projects.

  It appears that BASH when loading a terminal window in MAC OS X, Yosemite 10.10.1

results in Last login: Fri Feb  6 08:51:22 on ttys000
-bash: -e: command not found

When running
which svn

Open in new window


returns

/opt/subversion/bin//svn

It would probably be easier to just start over again but I have too many projects to do this right now.

Next, I echo
$PATH

Open in new window


With this result,

.nvm/v0.10.29/bin:/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.4/bin:/opt/subversion/bin/:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/git/bin:/usr/local/MacGPG2/bin

My question is this where do I begin in trying to unravel this problem, I have beta versions installed for node.js and just installed homebrew,

Would it be better to uninstall homebrew then attempt to uninstall all the underlying software so I can start over?

Yes, I see something that suggests a swap file crashed and still exists, E325: ATTENTION
Found a swap file by the name ".bash_profile.swp"
