Re: Where to put scripts
That depends. At least two alternatives exist depending on the number of
user accounts on the system and who is to have access. If access is to be
system-wide, /usr/local/bin is the place for these scripts. If a single
user or group of users is to have access, then /home/user/bin/ is proper.
Those two statements do not take into account version control. If you
were using rcs I know very very old, you might have co put the checked out
scripts into /usr/local/bin/ by default. Version control is really smart.
