which -- locate a program file in the users $PATH environment variable
which [-a] name [...]
which takes a list of names and looks for the files which would be exe-
cuted had these names been given as commands. Each argument is searched
for along the user's PATH.
If the -a flag is given, which will continue to search the PATH until all
instances of a program file are found.
The which command appeared in 3.0BSD.
This implementation does not expand csh(1) aliases, and is shell agnos-
tic. This is really a feature.
