       which - locate a program file including aliases and paths (csh only)

       which [ name ] ...

       Which  takes  a	list  of  names and looks for the files which would be executed had these
       names been given as commands.  Each argument is expanded if it is  aliased,  and  searched
       for along the user's path.  Both aliases and path are taken from the user's .cshrc file.

       ~/.cshrc  source of aliases and path values

       A  diagnostic  is  given  for names which are aliased to more than a single word, or if an
       executable file with the argument name was not found in the path.

       Must be executed by a csh, since only csh's know about aliases.
