pwhich - Perl-only `which'
$ pwhich perl
$ pwhich -a perl # print all matches
$ pwhich perl perldoc ... # look for multiple programs
$ pwhich -a perl perldoc ...
`pwhich' is a command-line utility program for finding paths to other programs based on
the user's "PATH". It is similar to the usualy Unix tool `which', and tries to emulate its
functionality, but is written purely in Perl (uses the module "File::Which"), so is
$ pwhich [-a] [-v] programname [programname ...]
-a The option -a will make "pwhich" print all matches found in the "PATH" variable
instead of just the first one. Each match is printed on a separate line.
-v Prints version (of "File::Which") and copyright notice and exits.

Originated in modperl-2.0/lib/Apache/Build.pm. Changed for use in DocSet (for the mod_perl
site) and Win32-awareness by me, with slight modifications by Stas Bekman, then extracted
to create "File::Which".
Version 0.04 had some significant platform-related changes, taken from the Perl Power
Tools `which' implementation by Abigail with enhancements from Peter Prymmer. See
<http://www.perl.com/language/ppt/src/which/index.html> for more information.
