I didn't find a good topic on this subject and decided to create this question, for those who are experiencing this problem. Using
System.getenv("PATH") does not list all the values of that environment variable. Tested points:
- Running the
echo $PATHcommand in the linux terminal correctly lists all configured paths.
- Turning off the machine does not work
ProcessEnvironment.environment()returns the same thing as the first code
I'm using this code:
String cmd = ['echo', '$PATH'] Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmd); BufferedReader retorno = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream())) retorno.readLines()
Theoretically it should return the same value as in the terminal, but in addition to not identifying some programs like 'help', when using
echo $PATH the return is an array of size 1 with the value $PATH in string.
Anyone with an interesting solution to this problem?
