Re: Running executables
When you type a command in the shell (most shells) the PATH Variable is checked. This contains a set of directories to search for executables. If the directory in which your script is stored is in your PATH, you can just type the name. If not, you must tell the shell ./ (here and now) run "this".
I generally create a directory for my scripts and add it to my PATH. Alternately, you can use /usr/bin or /usr/sbin directories.
