I am trying to test out Puppet strings, and i am unable to get it working.

I've installed both gems yard and puppet-string

I've tried on windows and on centos 7

whenever i run the command i get this error

Error: Unknown Puppet subcommand 'strings'

Has anyone here used strings before?

What does `puppet --version` tell? Have you installed everything as `root`/with administrator privileges? I have tried it out, like last (Northern) winter, and as far as I can recall, it did not /not/ work.

I got my answer on the Puppet community slack

Below was the message from dev_el_ops

if you run /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/gem list, does it show puppet-strings? if no, you need to use that gem binary to install it into puppet, instead of your system ruby.

This was my problem and it was fixed when I installed the gems in the correct place.
