adding your shell-scripts dir to path

leave a comment »

This is what my ~/.bashrc file looks like — pretty simple

# .bashrc

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
. /etc/bashrc
fi

# User specific aliases and function
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

~/bin is where I put my scripts. Addidng that to the path is what “PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin” line does. Then all that you need to do is to make the script executable with….

chmod 755 your_script
