PATHS(3)                NetBSD Library Functions Manual               PATHS(3)

NAME
     paths -- default system paths

SYNOPSIS
     #include <paths.h>

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

              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.

              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.

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