 /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, /sbin or /opt/bin, /var/opt/bin - I'm confused.

Hi all,

All these directories are for executable binary, right ?  How does one
decide which executable binary goes to which directory ?

/usr/bin : For what ?
/usr/local/bin:  for what ?
/sbin : ??
/opt/bin : ??
/var/opt/bin : ??

Is there any other /bin beside those above ?

Thanks

/usr/bin : For what ?            for solaris tools
/usr/local/bin:  for what ?    for your tools (local to that
server/site/company)
/sbin : ??                                for system tools (system bin)
/opt/bin : ??                            for add-on options tools
/var/opt/bin : ??                      same again
