To invoke profit from a UNIX shell prompt, simply give the complete path to this executable:

unix% /path/to/my/profit/bin/profit

Optionally, users may add the path to the PATH environment variable, as shown here for csh/tcsh-type shells:

unix% setenv PATH $PATH\:/path/to/my/profit/bin

or as follows for sh/bash/ksh-type shells:

unix# PATH=\$PATH:/path/to/my/profit/bin
unix# export PATH

These commands may be included in the .cshrc file (if you use the tcsh shell) or .bashrc file (if you use the bash shell) to add profit to the path automatically when a new shell is started. Links to this file can be made and placed in any directory.
