$PATH edit query


Using Suse 10.0 on an x86_64 machine.

I know how to add items to my $PATH in .bashrc, but how do I remove items from it? I've gotten rid of some software and would like to clean up the path.

All you do is remove the relevant directories from the "PATH=/some/dir:/another/dir:/yet/another/dir" line in your .bashrc.
