How To Set up HomeBrew on AlmaLinux 9

This guide intends to teach you to Set up and Install HomeBrew or Brew on AlmaLinux 9.

Homebrew or Brew is an open-source software package manager that makes it easier to install software on macOS (Apple’s operating system) and Linux.

Basically, a package manager’s job is to find and install the right software packages that will allow you to compile and run various apps/software on your specific operating system. A package manager, like Homebrew, does a lot of tedious time-consuming work that you would otherwise have to do manually.
