Rehashing forces the shell to "reinitialise" (for want of a better term)
so that it rechecks the path and can sometimes discover new programs
installed if they don't seem to work. Alternatively you can exit and
either login again, or restart the shell (depending on how you obtained
thet shell in the first place)
