NAME
which -- locate a program file in the users $PATH environment variable
SYNOPSIS
which [-a] name [...]
DESCRIPTION
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.
HISTORY
The which command appeared in 3.0BSD.
BUGS
This implementation does not expand csh(1) aliases, and is shell agnos- tic. This is really a feature. NetBSD 9.99 April 23, 1991 NetBSD 9.99
