SYNOPSIS

which [-as] program ...

DESCRIPTION

The which utility takes a list of command names and searches the path for each executable file that would be run had these commands actually been invoked.

The following options are available:

-a List all instances of executables found (instead of just the first one of each).
-s No output, just return 0 if any of the executables are found, or 1 if none are found.

Some shells may provide a builtin which command which is similar or identical to this utility. Consult the builtin(1) manual page.
