mkdir $HOME/.MacOSX

and put this, after changing it a bit, in the new folder. This is just a copy 
of mine.

cat > $HOME/.MacOSX/environment.plist
paste the text of the new file here

should handle it without having to use finder which just doesn't like 
directories that start with a dot.

Note that you cannot add things to &PATH this way. You have to specify the 
whole thing with full path names. The file is read when you log in to OS neXt 
in the GUI sense. It is not read when you open a Terminal or run a perl script.

[~]% cat ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" 
<plist version="1.0">
        <string>Douglas P. McNutt</string>
