    Thanks – I learned something today. :)

    However, hoping you might be able to advise why this occurs?

    $ sudo cat /etc/sudoers | grep secure_path
    Defaults        secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"
    $ sudo echo $secure_path
    

    No output? Shouldn’t $secure_path be set?

      @Jon

      secure_path is a configuration option for sudo command not the shell environment. The directories in it can only be viewed or set by opening the /etc/sudoers file.
