I, like an idiot, decided to
After some googling I was informed that one should use a
.bash_profile file in the root directory of your user which you can use to append paths to the initial
$PATH . However the
.bash_profile file did not exist prior to me creating one so I'm unsure how to prompt my Mac to actually use this file as part of it's
PATH configuration. Every site I've visited simply tells you to make edits to said file but does not explain how to get the OS to use it.
How do I get my Mac to read from
.bash_profile to add custom paths?
