WHEREIS(1)                   BSD Reference Manual                   WHEREIS(1)


     whereis - locate programs


     whereis name [...]


     The whereis utility checks the standard binary directories for the speci-
     fied name, printing out the paths of any it finds that are executable by
     the user.

     The path searched is the string returned by the sysctl(8) utility for the
     "user.cs_path" string.

     The whereis utility exits with one of the following values:

     0     All names were successfully resolved.
     1     Some names were resolved but not all.
     2     No names were resolved.
     -1    A system error occurred.


     apropos(1), find(1), locate(1), which(1), sysctl(8)


     The historic flags and arguments for the whereis utility are no longer
     available in this version.


     The whereis command appeared in 3.0BSD.
