Have you tried the following command
:> sudo echo NN > /sys/class/gpio/export
where NN is the gpio device that you want to work with.
If root, you don't need sudo.

First of all /sys/class/gpio/export is not a command. /sys/class/gpio/export is a path to a pseudo file. Additionally, this file very likely has write permissions only, so attempting to read from this “file” may always fail regardless of the users permissions.

As stated by another person already, you echo(write) a valid value into this file, and then the gpio system drivers enables a related gpio pin for you. In order to reverse this process, you would echo(write) this same value into the unexport pseudo file.
