    Troubleshooting

    Tips for how to fix various errors you may encounter while running this program

    'pong' is not recognized

    'pong' is not recognized as an internal or external command, 
    operable program or batch file.
    

    Solution 1

    Make sure you installed pong globally. You do this by running the command

    $ npm i -g command-line-pong
    

    Notice the -g, that is what makes the install global.

    Solution 2

    If it is installed globally, make sure that the 'npm' is in your PATH. For instructions on how to do that, see this stackoverflow post.
