No command is executing as root user.
I installed sbt(for scala language), and as written in its installation manual i changed the path settings
it was like "export path=/home/user/Downloads/sbt/bin=$path"
in ~./bashrc but after which i am unable to execute any command as root user.please help me out.

1. Can you provide the link to the manual? The export line does not look right.
2. The file is ~/.bashrc and NOT ~./bashrc
3. Not sure, but you're not doing it in root's home, are you?

1. Linux is case sensitive, so it must be PATH and $PATH, not path and $path
2. Paths are separated with :, not =, so the correct line in your .bashrc should be

export PATH=/home/user/Download/sbt/bin:$PATH
But as sycamorex stated, would be good to see that manual.

yes i wrote in caps ,but i now i am unable to undo the changes , as vim or any command is not executing from root as user

That's just because your PATH is messed up, so it doesn't know where to look for the vim executable. Use the full path to vim to correct it:

/usr/bin/vim ~/.bashrc
