That works!

I thank you for taking the trouble to write up a detailed procedure; that
was a great help for my sleepy head at 2 am.  The only additional thing
for which I had to google was the procedure for modifying PATH.

I write and use bash scripts almost daily, but this is the first time I
have needed to include the rest of the command line (the file name); I was
not sure that that could be done in bash.
