I have followed the suggestion in this answer How do you update the default version of Nano on MacOS without using the homebrew package manager?
I have macOS High Sierra. After the installation I have tried:
$ nano -V
And the output is:
GNU nano version 2.0.6 (compiled 19:06:01, Oct 6 2017) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Web: http://www.nano-editor.org/ Compiled options: --disable-nls --enable-color --enable-extra --enable-multibuffer --enable-nanorc --enable-utf8
So I have tried to see where nano is located:
$ which nano
and the output is
Checking the path:
$ echo $PATH /usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
I don't understand, if the first path is where nano is installed, why the new version is not available.
