(exec-path program [args ...])procedure
exec-path* program arg-listprocedure

This will simply execute program with the given arguments in args or args-list. The program replaces the currently running process. All arguments (including program) must be strings, symbols or numbers, and they will automatically be converted to strings before invoking the program.

The program is looked up in the user's path, which is simply the $PATH environment variable. There currently is no separately maintained path list like in SCSH. The difference between the two procedures is that exec-path accepts a variable number of arguments and exec-path* requires them pre-collected into a list.
