Adding directories to the Mac OS X PATH variable
This tutorial shows you how to add directories to your Mac OS X PATH variable.
- Open the Terminal application. It can be found in the Utilities directory inside the Applications directory.
- Type the following: echo 'export PATH=YOURPATHHERE:$PATH' >> ~/.profile, replacing "YOURPATHHERE" with the name of the directory you want to add. Make certain that you use ">>" instead of one ">".
- Hit Enter.
- Close the Terminal and reopen. Your new Terminal session should now use the new PATH.
