Hello, I'm a new mac user and don't know much about how to use Terminal. I need to run a dump file for your-freedom. It is in my applications folder and their website says this:

Unix like OS's (including MacOSX I guess): cd to the directory where the contents of the ZIP file are. Then type
java -jar freedom.jar --dump=dump.log
(if you can't write there, use a full path after the --dump option, e.g. /tmp/dump.log)

So what I have been typing into Terminal is this:

/Applications/freedom-20071231-01/java -jar freedom.jar --dump=dump.log

I'm not sure if this is how to run a command in Terminal or not, but it says no such file or directory exists. Thanks

Try this:

cd /Applications/freedom-20071231-01
java -jar freedom.jar --dump=dump.log

(each line is a separate command in Terminal)

You can also just double-click the freedom.jar file from the Finder.
