Hi all,

I just got a new mac and there are some things that I have not been able to set correctly yet. When I open an application such for an example emacs which I open as

open -a /Applications/

in some directory let's say /home/guest then if I search files it starts in /home
for an example - how to set PATH so when I open an application(emacs was just one example) then it start in the directory in which the application is opened?

Thanks in advance


QUOTE Thanks
