Missing single and double quotes on RH134-LAB

Hi all, 

Can someone please tell me how to fix missing single and double quotes on RH134-Lab exercise? 
I did not have this issue in the first course RH124-lab, however since I started the second course the specials characters do not appear on the lab at all; consequently I cannot pass graded labs. 

Thank in advance.

Kind regards,
Kanatbek

Be a little more specific. Which lab?

Keep in mind that there are:

  1. single quotes: '
  2. double quotes: "
  3. back ticks: ` (back ticks are typically the upper left most key, above Tab)

-----

Incidentally, I cringe at the use of back ticks in the scripts that Red Hat continues to use. They usually used for command substitution and they should be considered deprecated.

What really should be used for command substitution is $(command).

Even a Red Hat blog post brings this up...

Hi Tracy Baker,

Thanks for promp reply.

The single (')  double (") quotes or special characters (^, ..etc) do not appear in lab i.e. in all lab exercises, in particularly it is a bit difficult to vcall defined variables  in echo "some text $(command)"  fails. 

I hope this additional information about issue helpful.

Kind regards,
Kanatbek

Oh, I think I got it.

think you're referring to a web browser problem that I've seen before - particularly with Firefox.

The first thing is to try one different what what you're using: Chrome, Edge, Opera . . .

Hello Tracy Baker,

The issue with missing single, double and special symbols are resolved.  I do not know how this was fixed, but  the console shows now all symbols and quotes.  I am using the same browser with the same amount cookies.  

Thanks for your reply and effort. 

Kind regards,
Kanatbek
