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?
