Changing my Ruby path to use a fresh install

Have installed Ruby using Darwin Ports and want to change my path to
use it. Where do I change this, and what do I type? I’m not a Unix
genius, but it’s located:

if I run the command
$which ruby

I get returned /usr/bin/ruby which is the standard install, and I’m
having issues with it and readline. So I want to change it to the new



You have to move /opt/local/bin before /usr/bin in your PATH environment
variable. For bash, do something like export
PATH="/opt/local/bin:/usr/bin…" and for tcsh it should be setenv.

Or you can make a symlink like this: ln -s /opt/local/bin/ruby


Ahh many thanks,
Got it going now.
