Ha! I never thought of twisting it around that way.

It works a treat (after sorting out all the rubbish advice on stack exchange)

It is really  ~/.zshrc you have create and add this:

export PATH=$PATH:/Applications/Aquamacs.app/Contents/MacOS/bin

to it.

Now I can get into the meaty stuff of creating the TAGS data I need.

Thanks so much!
