This command, invoked on the command line, will tell *all* places that are looked up to find a CLS file:

	kpsewhich -show-path .cls | tr : '\n'

The following command will show, in a pretty way, only the places in your own private area:

	kpsewhich -show-path .cls | tr : '\n' | grep Users | sort

But it still sucks! It shows also places where only configuration files and the like go, so let's improve it a bit more:

	kpsewhich -show-path .cls | tr : '\n' | grep Users | grep -v texmf- | sort

The last line is not the adequate choice, the first line is the root of a large systematic tree, so probably the middle line is the appropriate place. To create this directory invoke on the command line:

	mkdir -p ~/Library/texmf/tex/generic

Then invoke

	open ~/Library/texmf/tex/generic

and will appear in Finder.



Isn't vi that text editor with two modes... one that beeps and one that corrupts your file?
