+ `$PATH`. You can do this by running `cabal install pandoc`, and then making
+ sure your `.cabal/bin` directory is in the `$PATH` environment variable. The
+ following is usually enough: `export PATH=~/.cabal/bin:$PATH` and you may
+ wish to perform this automatically on starting your shell (via `.bashrc` or
+ otherwise) if you haven't already.
