It sounds like
.bashrc was not terminated by a newline before you ran those commands. Look at the end of the file in a text editor and make sure that
GOPATH=/home/chawat/Programming/GoWorkspace starts on a line of its own.
echo "GOPATH=/home/chawat/Programming/GoWorkspace" >> ~/.bashrc echo "export GOPATH" >> ~/.bashrc echo "PATH=\$PATH:\$GOPATH/bin" >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc
bash: /home/chawat/.bashrc: line 171: syntax error near unexpected token `newline' bash: /home/chawat/.bashrc: line 171: `esacGOPATH=/home/chawat/Programming/GoWorkspace'
plz help me whats wrong?
