Where Binaries Should Stay

Where should mac binaries go#

Recently downloaded vault which is a simple binary. Unsure where to put it for it to be available on the echo $PATH and not much help from the docs…

A search was initiated and found that local binaries should go in: /usr/local/bin which is already part of the path.

One can do:

cp ~/Downloads/vault /usr/local/bin

and the binary became available.

Another option is using install:

sudo install -m 0755 ~/Downloads/vault /usr/local/bin/
