i was playing around with node.js and wanted to add the PATH variable on my mac. After updating the .bash_profile file, i realised I messed up something as none of the command worked. i.e when I tried ‘ls’ I got -bash: ls: command not found

touch .bash_profile open -a TextEdit.app .bash_profile

Do not forget the :$PATH variable at the end of your new path.
After setting the environment Path you can verify with echo $PATH command.
