Hi,

do the search by your self in Mathematica, prepend the path
and call the program with a full qualifyed path

|I want to run an external program from a 
Mathematica notebook on Mac OS
| X. The external program is located under 
/usr/local/software/bin. I
| added the directory "/usr/local/software/bin" to 
the $PATH in
| /etc/profile (I'm running bash). In a terminal 
window, the command
| "env" shows that the directory 
"/usr/local/software/bin" is in the
| $PATH. However, in the Mathematica notebook, the 
command
| "Import["!env", "Lines"]" shows that the 
"/usr/local/software/bin" is
| not in the $PATH. As a result, the external 
program does not run from
| the notebook.
|
| Is there anyway to make the new $PATH visible to 
Mathematica?
|
| Thanks for your help.
