The rehash Command

The rehash command rebuilds the command list from the files found along the user's executable file search path. The command will recalculate the internal hash tables used when looking up operating system commands, and make all operating system commands in the user's PATH available for command completion. This command takes no arguments, and has effect only when the unixcom variable is set.
