command not found...

Good day.
I am trying to run the Khepera robot simulator version 2. After I enter the make command in the terminal, it works out fine but then when I enter the next command which is sim, I get the ff. messages:

bash: sim: command not found
[1] Exit 127 sim

What does it mean? The sim executable binary file is in the directory but why does the message display that the command is not found?

Is the "sim" executable in your current working directory?

If so, try:
On many distros, the current working directory (.) is not included in the PATH for security reasons.

I hope this helps
