Hello everyone,
I am curious as to why my exec path is not expanding the PATH variable. Does it expand it when it uses it or should it be expanded in the exec-path variable? I cannot get a directory listing and as per a previous post I get an error that it can't find the ls program. Could this be the cause?
exec-path's value is
("/$SYBASE/$SYBASE_OCS/bin" "$SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/bin" "$PATH" "/Applications/" "/Applications/")

Hmmm. What do (getenv "SYBASE"), (getenv "SYBASE_OCS"), (getenv "SYBASE_ASE"),
and (getenv "PATH") return?

SYBASE = /Applications/Sybase/System

That last line leads me to believe that some shell initialization file is
broken.  What is your login shell?  And exactly what do the commands in the
init file that are trying to prepend the $SYBASE directories to PATH look like?
