NPM no longer working

so I wasn't paying attention and ran this command-

npm install npm install jasmine-node -g


which caused this -

Now when I try and run

npm install jasmine-node -g


I get

-bash: /usr/local/bin/npm: No such file or directory


What's going on?

Tried it myself.

You will need to install npm again. If you use git, this is the easiest way:

git clone http://github.com/isaacs/npm.git
cd npm
sudo make install

Otherwise, there is an install script too:

curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

(possibly you will need to use sudo sh instead of sh).

Then install your module again:

sudo npm install jasmine-node -g

EDIT 23/01/2014:

Now npm comes with NodeJs itself, so just reinstall NodeJs.
