      Description

      Jalview 2.11.2.0 includes a launcher script for command line use (in fact several for different operating systems).
      These are found in JALVIEW_DIR/bin
      jalview.sh (Linux and macOS)
      jalview.bat (Windows)
      jalview.ps1 (Windows, also Linux and macOS if you install powershell 6)

      The Linux installer wizard gives the option of creating a symbolic link in your PATH to jalview.sh.
      The Windows installer wizard gives the option of putting JALVIEW_DIR\bin in your %PATH%.
      macOS does not have an installer wizard. It has a link as
      /Applications/Jalview.app/Contents/MacOS/jalview

      The user might not choose the option at installation time.

      Jalview desktop application should have a facility (e.g. Tools -> Install command line launcher script) to allow the user to add these scripts to their PATH (symbolic link or otherwise) after installation.
