NAME

     whereis - locate programs

SYNOPSIS

     whereis name [...]

DESCRIPTION

     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.
