Getting started - unable to resolve symbol

As a greenhorn I’d appreciate your help please.
I’ve been following the Getting Started tutorial.

In tab 1 of Terminal I’m seeing this, which looks okay:
Local forwarding listening on ::1 port 8182.
debug1: channel 1: new [port listener]
debug1: Requesting
debug1: Entering interactive session.
debug1: pledge: network
debug1: client_input_global_request: rtype want_reply 0
debug1: Connection to port 8182 forwarding to socks port 0 requested.
debug1: channel 2: new [dynamic-tcpip]
debug1: channel 2: free: direct-tcpip: listening port 8182 for port 8182, connect from port 60931 to port 8182, nchannels 3

But in tab 2 of my Terminal I can’t get further than this:

Garys-MacBook-Pro:garydatomic garyhudson$ clj
Clojure 1.10.1
(def cfg {:server-type :ion
:region “us-east-2”
:system “garystack2”
:endpoint “
:proxy-port 8182})
Syntax error compiling at (REPL:1:1).
Unable to resolve symbol: “us-east-2” in this context

What am I doing wrong please?

It looks like you have non-ascii double quotes around those strings.

Agreed. If you’re copying/pasting the configuration from somewhere, it’s possible you’ve ended up with “smart” quotes, which are not the same character as the ASCII double quote.

You are very kind @tslocke and @marshall - this has solved my problem. I’m back on the tutorial now :slight_smile:
Much obliged
