This is handy when you want to just type the name of a script
"as if it was hscript", without using source.

cd ~
vi .bashrc

The Startup File you edit could be different than .bashrc
Some useful Startup files to know:
.bashrc for bash shell
.bash_profile for bash shell
.cshrc for C shell or tcsh
.login for C shell or tcsh
.exrc for vi editor
.Xdefaults for programs using the X-Window System
.xinitrc for X Window System
.gnome for GNOME graphical desktop

add this line with your configuration:
export HOUDINI_SCRIPT_PATH=path/to/custom/bin:/path/to/hfs/hfs8.0_RH9/houdini/scripts
