XPATH Variable

Similar to the PATH environment variable, the shell uses the XPATH variable as a list of directories to search to find xmlsh scripts. Unlike the PATH variable, however, the XPATH variable is treated as a sequence, not a ";" or ":" separated string. If the XPATH only contains a single directory it can be set as a sequence of 1.

Example: Set the XPATH variable to the directory C:/xmlshscripts

If you want to set XPATH to more then one directory then you can use any XML expression which produces sequences. The simplilest is the sequence constructor ().

Example Set the XPATH variable to 3 directories
XPATH=(/usr/local/bin/xmlshscripts $HOME/xmlsh /opt/myscripts)

Similarly you can use any XML expression which produces sequences such as <[ ]>

XPATH=<["/usr/local/bin/xmlshscripts", concat($HOME,"/xmlsh"), "/opt/myscripts" ]>

As with all sequence variables you can use the += notation to add to the variable
