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 type CONTROL D 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.
