@ Warren: Bingo:

# in terminal:

$ echo $PATH

# from LC

put shell ("echo $PATH")

# checking which 

$ which node

@HH I think I will stick with Mark's recommendation to specify the absolute path.. this works

cd /Users/Brahmanathaswami/Documents/media-books/_hap-epub-export-tool
/usr/local/bin/node index.js --epubFile ###epubPath### -e -i ###OutputDirectory###

Awesome, now with a some keys on the remote server and a little scp I am cooking with gas..



p.s. HH Wrote:  Is it worth an enhancement request to add "/usr/local/bin" by default
to LC's global $PATH on Mac? 

BR: yes indeed... not sure bug ID 10569 is the place for it I though as the scope of Mark's (Waddington) idea there seems a bit different to me.. though I am not an expert...
