i am new to Mac.
i run 'whereis' program before and apart from the program path, it showed me the other directories the program is also using... (i use whereis firefox to check the directories) but lately it suddenly doesn't work... just nothing except going back to the prompt.
someone said the application (firefox) is not under the PATH, i checked and understood, but just don't get it why whereis work before and now don't.
i tried whereis whereis and it replied /usr/bin/whereis
how to make it back to before?
