Of all my luck, my favorite text editor in Windows has a filename of Notepad++.exe. I think those plus signs are causing a problem. Here is the kind of error I'm getting:
/* I'm trying to revert a commit ... */
D:\git_root\explore_california [master]> git revert fabab344b6fd94c77
/* I get this message, that it can't find my text editor, notepad++.exe */
d:\Sharware\Notepad++\notepad++.exe: line 1: d:SharwareNotepad++notepad++.exe: command not found
error: There was a problem with the editor 'd:\Sharware\Notepad++\notepad++.exe'.
When I do a git config --list, this is how the entry for my text editor looks like:
I've tried doing a git config core.editor="D:\\shareware
", thinking that I had to escape out the plus signs, but it still won't work.
Can anyone tell me what's wrong? I'm hoping someone out there is using notepad++.exe as their text editor for Git, were you able to make it work?
