# Setting the Paths¶

The executable program is

<HERWIGPATH>/bin/Herwig


It may be convenient to add <HERWIGPATH>/bin to your PATH environment variable by using either

export PATH=<HERWIGPATH>/bin:$PATH  for bash like shells or setenv PATH <HERWIGPATH>/bin:$PATH


for tcsh like shells. Or you can create a soft link to the binary in your working directory (we assume a working directory example in the following, which is only an example, of course):

[example] \$ ln -s <HERWIGPATH>/bin/Herwig .


(the dot at the end marks the current directory). In the following we assume you have used one of the previous options and simply refer to the executable as Herwig.
