# On Unix systems, ~/packer or /usr/local/packer is generally good,
# depending on whether you want to restrict the install to just your user
# or install it system-wide. On Windows systems, you can put it wherever you'd like.
# it unzips the executable binary into the recommended folder for all users

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/packer
