that snippet supposes you have cabal installed in your home directory under
the directory ".cabal". The binary file would be in the bin subdirectory of
Names that start with a . are hidden files/directories on linux, by the way.
So the first line checks if you have "cabal" in your path list. If not, on
the 3rd line it supposes your home directory is /home/andrew and adds the
cabal binary directory to your path list.
