I am a little confused here. I have git installed via homebrew but I'm not 100% sure if the git I am using
in the terminal is the git I have installed via homebrew. In fact this goes for all packages which I have installed via homebrew.
Looking at the below sequence of commands, do I need to add anything extra to $PATH? For instance, should I be adding my brew cellar?

Then I have two remaining questions:
(1) why is whichpostgresql [readline etc] not returning anything?
(2) how does my system know to look in homebrew's cellar (as it does with git) if there is nothing relating to homebrew in $PATH?

Looking at the above I found that I was just typing in the wrong name... the symbolic link for postgresql is just postgres
I installed the package manager called homebrew a few days ago. Everything seems to be working fine but today I've just noticed this funny looking directory $(brew --prefix). I'm not sure if I made a mistake and duplicated this directory from somewhere else, or if it's suppose to be... (3 Replies)
