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/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/bin"
"/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/libexec")

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

They return the value of the environment variable of the argument.

That's what they should return, but I asked Robert to check since the
variable references and not the actual values were put into exec-path.
