This directory will then be used for tasks started after the change. Running tasks and Hermes itself are not affected. The working directory can also be set in the Hermes defaults file.
A directory may contain (or consist of) one or more environment variables (indicated by a leading $-character). Whenever a task start command without an explicit path is given, this list is scanned to find the task. If it is not in one of the specified directories, Hermes tries to find the task in $gip_exe. The default path is `.' (the current working directory). The task path can also be set in the Hermes defaults file.
