10.4: Use Preview to view formatted man pages
Authored by: xSmurf on Dec 30, '05 10:21:40AM
The PATH is the location where all the, terminal, programs are store. If you can type 'gre' and hitting tab autocompletes to 'grep' it's because 'grep' is in your path. The PATH is set in your ~/.bash_profile (if running bash) and will look something like export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin:~/bin. You can see in my example that I add /usr/local/bin and ~/bin to the existing $PATH variable (which probably already holds paths like /bin and /sbin). Hope this helps.
