an easy little question about installing from source...

one program that im installong says:

"Make sure that /usr/local/bin is in your PATH before you continue"

how can i verify that? i mean, how can i check what is my 'PATH' ?
(im sure that is an easy one )

Type: $PATH to find out your current path.

IT is sometimes easier to read if you use:
echo $PATH | sed 's/:/\n/g'
