Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

1. A bang path or explicitly routed internet address; a node-by-node specification of a link between two machines.

2. pathname.

3. The list of directories the kernel (under unix) or the command interpreter (under ms-dos) searches for executables. It is stored as part of the environment in both operating systems.
