PATHS(3)                   Library Functions Manual                   PATHS(3)

NAME
     paths -- default system paths

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;paths.h>&gt;

DESCRIPTION
     The <paths.h> header defines some default paths used in NetBSD.  All
     defined constants are prefixed with _PATH.  The constants include:

           o   The default user search path set by login(1) and associated
               utilities such as rshd(8).  This is defined by _PATH_DEFPATH
               and includes directories such as /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin.

           o   Default paths for some utilities and device nodes.  Examples
               include such paths as /dev/null (_PATH_DEVNULL), /dev/mem
               (_PATH_MEM), and /etc/nologin (_PATH_NOLOGIN), among others.

           o   Paths for some default directories such as /dev (_PATH_DEV) and
               /tmp (_PATH_TMP) as well as paths for some miscellaneous
               utilities such as csh(1), /bin/csh (_PATH_CSHELL).
