4.3 Organizing Nonexecutable Scripts

Most UNIX users put their own shell scripts and compiled binary programs in a subdirectory called bin ( 4.2 ) , within their home directory. But what about other kinds of scripts, which aren't executable, but which might be handy to re-use?

For example, I use sed ( 34.24 ) for many complex editing tasks. I could run sed from a shell script to make the whole command executable, but more often than not, I just use the runsed ( 34.3 ) script, which looks for a file in the current directory called sedscr .

I keep my various sed scripts in a subdirectory of my home directory called sedlib , and then simply copy or link ( 18.3 ) them to sedscr whenever I want to use them with runsed .
