    Talking Path / Environment in unix

    Dear all,

    I've been trying to get the value of the PATH variable (unix) from a C program. The only thing I could think of is to loop through the .login file, but that seems like an overkill. Is there a simpler way to do this?

    getenv() function can be used

    just include stdlib.h



    And this should do .

    Be HAPPY
