.bashrc problem


I went into my .bashrc file and added the following line:

export $PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/MozillaFirebird

Now when a new shell opens, I'm getting the following error:

bash: export: `/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome2/bin:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin:/opt/gnome/bin=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome2/bin:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin:/opt/gnome/bin:/usr/local/MozillaFirebird': not a valid identifier

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong..sorry about these petty questions.

It should be:


export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/MozillaFirebird
