Thank you, and thanks again! I screwed up my $PATH variable and being relatively new to working in a terminal window I was pretty messed up until I found this post. You helped me tremendously. Thanks Again!!!

THANK YOU SO SO SO SO MUCH!!! I've been looking for this answer for a long time but no one had posted anything specific enough. They just said you can change the path like this "export PATH=/path/whatever"

You're a lifesaver.
