Output of whereis command


Hello Everyone,

It is not clear to me what the output of this command is giving back.
for instance:
Quote:
whereis java
java: /etc/java /usr/share/java /opt/jre1.7.0_45/bin/java /opt/jdk1.7.0_45/bin/java /opt/processing-2.0.3//java /opt/jdk1.7.0_45/bin//java
What's the meaning of those two "//" at the end of the jdk and processing program? It should not be a cause of the PATH.

Quote:
cat .bash_profile
#!/bin/bash
JAVA=/opt/jdk1.7.0_45
ARDUINO=/opt/arduino-1.0.5/
PATH=$PATH:/opt/processing-2.0.3/:$JAVA/bin/:$ARDUINO
Thanks!

It is due to the trailing slashes in some paths in your $PATH.

You can change to:
Code:
JAVA=/opt/jdk1.7.0_45
ARDUINO=/opt/arduino-1.0.5
PATH=$PATH:/opt/processing-2.0.3:$JAVA/bin:$ARDUINO
--mancha
