For example - my scala bin directory shows 3 times .
However, in my .bash_profile, it is written just one time . Also its not in .bashrc also. I need to make this 3 occurrences to 1, as even though I remove some path under PATH in .bash_profile, it still shows 2 times , which means that path is still set.
echo $PATH shows the same thing.

Here is what I was doing :-
2) make changes
source ~/.bash_profile to see those changes in effect .

source command, it shows 3 times the same path if i do
echo $PATH or
Closing the terminal and restarting it puts back everything to normal.
So, it was just a matter or restarting the terminal!!
Clarification :- Different platforms may perform differently. I found macosx-10.7 works this way.
