I'm impressed by anyone who can follow 24 pages of anything without
error impresses me. I have problems with a four page recipie.

You can exclude them in readers.conf if you want. I would say junk is
more likely to contain something you don't want them to see, but
whatever works for you.

In the user profile, like .profile or .bashrc, put the bin driectory
(directories) at the head of the PATH. Like:
being sure you use double quotes like my example rather than single like
your directory name in the question.
