I was installing opencv Python on my Macbook pro el capitan and in setting up the path messed up my .bashrc or path etc. I tried several of the suggestions on the SO and SU, to no luck, now i am scared of messing up even more, (sorry am a mac newbie)

Sans-MBP:~ San$ echo $PATH

Could someone help me with restoring the $PATH variable back? Thanks in advance

Edit: I did open my .bashrc in nano and this is what it shows

# added by Anaconda 2.2.0 installer
export PATH="//anaconda/bin:$PATH"

Now i am not sure what it should be to restore it. That's where I need help.


Just remove the export PATH=foo line from your .bashrc/.bash_profile. Then you just quit and reopen the terminal.
