I've just downloaded a shareware program which I can't get going...the program's support said that I need to open command-line prompt window, change it's current directory to the install folder (a "bin" folder located in Applications) and then type the filename.sh...
Unfortunately, I don't know how to change the directory at the command prompt and it's been a decades since my Apple Basic
Any help would be appreciated - including how to type in the path name in full...

'I've just downloaded a'n unidentified 'shareware program' from an unidentified web page, on an unidentified Mac model - running an unidentified version of MacOS X.
'Unfortunately, I don't know how ... and it's been a decades since my Apple Basic'; Applesoft (BASIC) or Integer BASIC, provided with the Apple II series, did not use UNIX commands; nor did the Operating Systems (DOS 3.3 or ProDOS).
'Any' further information, such as that being labeled 'unidentified' above, 'would be appreciated ...'.

To change directory at the command prompt, type "cd YOUR_DIRECTORY_HERE".

Running script from one directory about the bin directory:
bin/scriptname.sh #again, executable bit must be set
Hope that helps,
