which (version 2.16)

Which takes one or more arguments. For each of its arguments it prints to stdout the full path of the executables that would have been executed when this argument had been entered at the shell prompt. It does this by searching for an exe- cutable or script in the directories listed in the environ- ment variable PATH using the same algorithm as bash(1).
