[erlang-questions] Installing kerl

Tue Nov 20 20:03:18 CET 2018

I'd like to install kerl on my dev system.
I can download it fine from GitHub and make it executable:
~$ ls -l kerl
-rwxrwxr-x 1 lloyd lloyd 66489 Nov 20 13:26 kerl
But I need to add to $PATH but find a black hole in my Linux chops and Google sources confusing.
I try:
~$ PATH=/home/lloyd/kerl:$PATH
~$ echo $PATH
Seems to work. Bui my first kerl command fails:
~$ kerl list releases
No command 'kerl' found, did you mean:
 Command 'erl' from package 'erlang-base-hipe' (universe)
 Command 'erl' from package 'erlang-base' (main)
 Command 'perl' from package 'perl-base' (main)
kerl: command not found
Ideally I'd like kerl to be available with every console session. But I don't know how to do that.
Please show me the way.
