NAME
       kpsewhich - standalone path lookup and and expansion for kpathsea

SYNOPSIS
       kpsewhich [options] [filenames]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this ver-
       sion of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Kpathsea: A library for  path  search-
       ing.

       kpsewhich  is  used  as a standalone front-end of the kpathsea library that can be used to
       examine variables and find files.  When the --format option is not given, the search  path
       used  when  looking  for  a  file  is inferred from the name given, by looking for a known
       extension.  If no known extesion is found, the search path for TeX source files is used.
