I have recently installed Octave, a MATLAB clone, onto the following directory:
I want to run it from a shell command prompt from a different directory, say, from my home directory ~. I know that I can type the full path to the octave executable, but that is very cumbersome. I know that on linux computers you can edit your .bashrc file to include paths to special directories with executables. How do I accomplish that here in Mac OS?
