Big Nerd Ranch help!

Hi, I'm at the end of Chapter 15 and trying to work on the last challenge, but I can't locate the propernames file. I looked in the file path (usr/share/dict/propernames) given but it doesn't exist. Does anyone else know how to remedy this so I can attempt the challenge?

Thanks!

Try this: /usr/share/dict/propernames

Accuracy is important in programming. Note the leading slash. usr/share/dict/propernames is not the same as /usr/share/dict/propernames. The first is a relative path; the second is an absolute path.

Post your OS version. I have /usr/share/dict/propernames on 10.4 thru 10.8. YMMV.
