[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference\Which]
Format: WHICH <command> [NORES] [RES] [ALL]
Template: FILE/A, NORES/S, RES/S, ALL/S
Purpose: To search the command path for a particular item.
WHICH lets you find a particular command, program, or directory by entering
its name. If the named item is in the search path, WHICH displays the
complete path to that item. WHICH lists resident commands as RESIDENT and
internal commands as INTERNAL.
Normally, WHICH searches the resident list, the current directory, the
command path(s), and the C: directory. The condition flag is set to 5
(WARN) if the file is not found.
If the NORES option is specified, the resident list is not searched. If the
RES option is specified, only the resident list is searched.
The ALL switch causes the search to continue through the full search path,
even after one or more examples of the named item have been found and
listed. This ensures that all versions of a command or program are found. It
can, however, lead to multiple listings of the same command, if that command
is reached by more than one route (e.g., C: and the current directory).
