I have a folder with my handy shell scripts, called bin, and placed in my home:


Every time I open a terminal (be it with the Terminal app, or with iTerm, or from VS Code, etc.), I would like to be able to launch the scripts in bin, without having to prefix them with the full path: so like this

...:~ ...$my_nifty_script.sh

instead of this

...:~ ...$/Users/<my_home>/bin/my_nifty_script.sh

I guess I'll have to edit the PATH environment variable:

export PATH=$PATH:/Users/<my_home>/bin

Where do I put this instruction, so that it gets executed every time I open a terminal?
