[erlang-questions] Installing kerl

Thanks guys!
Dan, that did the trick!
~$ cp $HOME/kerl $HOME/bin/

:~$ kerl list releases
Eriic, I'd already tried your solution, but tried it again. 
~$ export PATH=/home/lloyd/kerl:$PATH
~$ kerl list releases
No command 'kerl' found, did you mean:
 Command 'perl' from package 'perl-base' (main)
 Command 'erl' from package 'erlang-base-hipe' (universe)
 Command 'erl' from package 'erlang-base' (main)
kerl: command not found
I'm grateful to you both for sharing your knowledge.
All the best

PATH contains *directories*, not actual executables.

To let your shell find it, add $HOME to PATH.

That said, it'd be better to copy that executable to a more
suitable directory. It appears that $HOME/bin is already on
PATH; use that:

 $ cp $HOME/kerl $HOME/bin/

And then see how it goes.
