Re: open a package in the terminal

Hi Gottfried,

The project (≈package) named 'musescore' distributes a binary (≈command) named 

  ~ λ ls $(guix build musescore)/bin

Don't ask me why they didn't call it 'musescore', but in general package names 
do not map 1:1 to binary names.  That's why peeking in the /{s,}bin directories 
is helpful.

An obvious example is 'coreutils', which provides most of the commands you use 
daily, but none named 'coreutils'.

Kind regards,


Sent on the go.  Excuse or enjoy my brevity.
