Bash will only execute programs which are specified in your path (to
see what your path is, type "echo $PATH"). If "." is not in your path,
then it won't execute programs in the current directory. If you want
to be able to execute things in the current directory without specifying
the "./" before it, then try this (in bash):
This will add "." to the end of your path. To do this every time you
log in (without retyping it every time), put that line in ~/.bashrc. This
is a script that is run every time a shell is started by you, and in
particular, it is run when you log in.
