Joy of TakeCommand/TCC - simple path display

Don't you hate reading the PATH variable?

When you echo it to the screen, it just flows on and on. It's very hard to read.

But thanks to TakeCommand and TCC, you can just type:


And see each component of the PATH on a separate line.  This also makes it easier to PIPE into other tools.

If you just have plain old Windows CMD.exe, you can install the Cygwin TR command and then type:

path | tr ";" "\n"

but isn't TCC nicer?
