Where is "experimental bash mode"?

Re: https://changelog.cursor.sh/?

Also, there’s an experimental bash mode: enable it in the settings, and let the chat answer questions with the help of running bash commands. If you find it useful, please let us know, and we will spend more time on making it production-ready!

i don’t see this anywhere, and nothing shows up on this forum for a search for “bash mode”.

i suspect this might help solve some of my challenges with Cursor not being able to “learn” about the file structure: Can Cursor "learn" about the git & file structure aspects of a repo? - #2 by raw.works

Enabled in the advanced cursor settings (see below). Think code interpreter but with access to bash instead of Python. Let me know if you run into issues! Very experimental. You might need to yell at the model to use bash.

Ack, are you on Windows? Only there for Linux/Mac for the time being.

@truell20 - did you guys get rid of bash mode? it’s gone again (i’m on os Version: 0.27.4 )

We retired bash mode in favor of interpreter mode. They tackle similar problems in our view. Let us know if that’s a regression at all!

the combo of the “terminal mode” and “interpreter mode” can replace it, i think the main thing is giving the “terminal mode” access to the chat =>

for many of my workflows - i’ve literally become a monkey that copy and pastes cursor’s output (or clicks “apply diff”). i’m trying to get to a workflow with direct file writing and hopefully git commits, so that cursor can go further downstream with the CI pipeline: try to build, catch any errors, fix the dumb mistake, recommit, make sure the build passes…
