A path is the way to get from Location A to Location B. It is usually stored as a list of directions, or a list of ''nodes'' to traverse. Nodes are often mapsquares in a tilebased game, or waypoints in a 3D game. Do a search for Amit''s Game Programming Site on a search engine, (or wait for someone else here to post the address) and that has lots of details on pathfinding

A ''path'' in a path-finding algorithm is the trajectory that a unit (say a robot or unit) will travel to move from the point it is right now to the destination it wants to reach based on what its goals are. AI will decide for the unit which at that moment is the correct (i.e. shortest, fastest, safest,...) path to follow.

Does this help?
