Assuming you are using MacOS Terminal windows, go to Terminal > Preferences > Settings > Shell and make sure the Startup : Run command box is checked. There is probably a command such as (for me):
/bin/bash --init-file /Users/dbrown/.bashrc

You can edit this line if necessary.

For me it indicates that the file .bashrc in my home directory is executed when bash starts inside a terminal window. You can do 'ls -a ~' to see if you have such a file. If not you can create it yourself . You should edit this file and add the command to set NCARG_ROOT and modify the PATH, for example:

export NCARG_ROOT=/usr/local/

Once you save this file you should be able to open a new window and use NCL without having to set up the PATH.
Hope this helps.

I tried to install it in my personal computer (MacOS X Version 10.6.7) following the instructions from the website. I set the path and was able to use it, but I found that I have to set the path every time I start a bash session in order for my computer to find ncl. Do you think that's something you could please help me with?
