    What exactly did you do and what error messages did you get, if any?

    i just downloaded bchunk (saved in the downloads folder)
    moved my bin and cue files into the same folder
    opened up terminal and typed in the code that was given in the link
    then i get a message saying "incorrect command" or "command does not exist" (something along those lines)

    Your download folder is not in your $PATH. A workaround is to run bchunk like this:
    ./bchunk myinputfile.bin myinputfile.cue myoutputfile

    The dot-slash means run the app that is in the folder you're in.

    The correct way is to move the bchunk app to the /usr/bin folder like it says in the article. Then make sure /usr/bin is in your $PATH so it can be run without having to use ./
    If the app is not in the $PATH, the system cannot find it so it says "command not found".

    No.
    Leave them in your home folder.
