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:

	   o   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.

	   o   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.

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

CAVEATS
     The <paths.h> header is specific to NetBSD.
