I am very much new with all of this. I installed Homebrew from the Terminal and I am now stuck on figuring out why the terminal commands from brew that installs UPX is outputting errors, albeit, they derive from the first error. I am feeling that this might be a parameter or some sort of setting error. I matched the finished installation code from the site I used to get the brew download/install code with my successfully completed report from Terminal and everything lined up to a T.
This is the code I used:
mac$ brew install upx $ upx -d /Applications/Ableton Live 9 Suite.app/Contents/MacOS/Ableton Live 9 Suite ; exit;
/usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Homebrew/brew.rb (Formulary::FormulaLoader): loading /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-core/Formula/upx.rb
Error: No available formula with the name "$" //main error which obviously makes no sense to me, almost like an oxymoron. But again, it is probably the tidiest answer to solve and likely the easiest I will come across.
==> Searching for a previously deleted formula... Error: No previously deleted formula found. ==> Searching for similarly named formuclae... ==> Searching local taps... Error: No similarly named formulae found. ==> Searching taps... ==> Searching taps on GitHub... Error: No formulae found in taps. logout Saving session... ...copying shared history... ...saving history...truncating history files... ...completed.
Was I supposed to restart Terminal? Mac? before trying to install UPX? Shell//Edit/New Window//Copy Special --> Choose Homebrew before UPX?
I have never done this live (other than suggested programs to write and compile code for school), let alone on a Mac; however, I am not sure any of that is relevant in the scope of learning.
Albeit, I am not anymore familiar with the rest of the parameters than I am confident about trying to accomplish this which obviously, is not the end goal I have. I am not even sure it will work because of 3.92 beta. It is possible, if I find that it is no longer a beta but actually their 4th or most recent version, I will be able to decompress an exe file. As I understand, El Capitan and Sierra set up strange but mostly irrelevant security diagnostics.
I think I will give myself a reboot, breathe and start over.
Any guidance is greatly appreciated! Thanks :)
