cd /

For bash Terminal


If you are using bash terminal then the location of fill will be as follows. The file name would be "bashrc".
/Users/YOUR-USER-NAME/.bashrc

For zsh Terminal


For zshrc then it will be located below, the name of the file will be "zshrc".
/Users/YOUR-USER-NAME/.zshrc 

Specify the Export Path


The next step is to specify the export path of the "composer vendor bin" to the "bashrc" or "zshrc" file and it's like below.
echo 'export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"' >> ~/.bashrc

# If you are using zshrc
echo 'export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"' >> ~/.zshrc
