Welcome to PADE (1.4) Checking environment variables Checking commandsPADE will then proceed with a list of the stand-alone programs that it was unable to find by searching the directories in the user's PATH, and environment variables that it was unable to find. After this, the PADE main window (Figure 5.1) should appear.
