pwhich - Pure Perl implementation of which
$ pwhich perl $ pwhich -a perl # print all matches $ pwhich perl perldoc ... # look for multiple programs $ pwhich -a perl perldoc ... $ pwhich -s perl # silent mode
pwhich is a command-line utility program for finding paths to other programs based on the user's
PATH. It is similar to the usually Unix tool `which', and tries to emulate its functionality, but is written purely in Perl (uses the module
File::Which), so is portable.
$ pwhich [-a] [-s] [-v] programname [programname ...]
The option -a will make
pwhichprint all matches found in the
PATHvariable instead of just the first one. Each match is printed on a separate line.
No output, just return 0 if any of the executables are found, or 1 if none are found.
Prints version (of
File::Which) and copyright notice and exits.
Bugs should be reported via the GitHub issue tracker https://github.com/plicease/App-pwhich/issues For other issues, contact the maintainer.
This module does not know about built-in shell commands, as the built-in command
where usually do.
This module is fully supported back to Perl 5.8.1. It may work on 5.8.0.
