    77So that a user does not always need to remember the exact location of an executable to invoke a command, a search path variable is used to define which locations and in what order to look for them:
    88
    9 * '''$PATH''' - search path, currently defined in /etc/shrc
     9* '''$PATH''' - search path, currently defined in /etc/environment
    1010
    1111Note that, due to the common presence of ':' in URIs, paths are separated by ',' instead of ':' as in BASH. This is subject to change.
