usr/local/bin in UNIX on Mac OS X 10.5.7
Posted on 2009-06-27
I'm trying to use the directory /usr/local/bin for some of my programming needs.
Having recently bought a mac, i'm kinda brand new to UNIX and the whole mac way of working.
Entering Terminal, i first type "cd / " into the command line followed by "ls".
This generates a list of everything in my root.
I can see usr is here, so going into usr (cd usr), i generate the list:
but there is no "local" (i.e. /usr/local/bin).
can anybody help me with this? would be much appreciated.
