paths -- default system paths
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).
