In order for that to be correct it needs to also have :/usr/local/bin 
inside of the quote marks.  The /usr/local/bin directory on Linux systems 
like slackware and debian is where stuff gets put that anyone can execute 
that's on the system.  I put a simple shell script I wrote there then 
tried to use it and it wouldn't work until I keyed in the 
/usr/local/bin/myd command.  That small script makes the date and time 
more readable for me. Since that file was copied from suse, people in that 
other distribution probably also ought to be notified.
