    An incremental parsing system for programming tools

    I want to install tree-sitter from https://github.com/tree-sitter/tree-sitter/releases/tag/v0.20.0. I've downloaded the binary to `~/Downloads/tree-sitter-linux-x64.gz` and unziped it with `gzip -d ~/Downloads/tree-sitter-linux-x64.gz` which created `~/Downloads/tree-sitter-linux-x64`. Then I ran `sudo mv ~/Downloads/tree-sitter-linux-x64 /usr/bin/` and restarted the terminal, to add it to my path. I still couldn't run `tree-sitter` from the command line, and realised I probably need to make it executable. But I'm not sure how to do this, and couldn't find anything from searching the web, as everything I found was about using the software centre or apt. I also realised `/usr/bin/` possibly isn't the right place to put it, but that is where I previously put some software (clang I believe), so I thought it is the correct place. What is the correct way to install the binary so I can run it from the command line?
