displaying path


Still working on that path probem. I could have sworn the other day when I typed echo $path as root I got a long path. Today it doesn't display anything just jumps down a couple lines and gives the the prompt again.

What do you think could be happening?

Please be a little bit more specific as to the problem you are having.

1. Are you trying to see your current location?
A. If so you need to use the "pwd" command
2. Are you trying to see your "Environmental Variables"?

3. Also a little bit more background to your problem

You can see a list of all of your environment variables with "printenv". Generally they are all-caps.
