/usr/local/bin is the location where the third-party programs and executable files land up. You will find, Python, Ruby, Java, Golang, Rust, and all kind of executables here.
It could be so that you are new to Mac and wondering how to access the /usr/local/bin location using the Terminal. Well, we take a look at it with some very simple steps.
