New to editing my .profile, so please bear with me if my question seems somewhat trivial.
I downloaded software to convert a proprietary data to ASCII, the software being from Trimble. Then I did the following:
cd /Users/my_iMac mkdir runpkr00 cd runpkr00/ cp ~/Downloads/runpkr00-MountainLion-i386-5-4.40 . vi ~/.profile
Then back out...
When I begin typing runpkr and then tab, it is recognised, then trying to convert a .T02 file (in the correct directory), the command is executed and doesn't return an error message, but doesn't convert the files either. After reading about setting variables in the .profile I'm still a bit confused about where programs should be stored (/usr/local/bin or /usr/bin/ or simply /bin/) and whether the program should be stored in either one of these three directories.
