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 version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Kpathsea: A library for path searching. kpsewhich is used as a standalone front-end of the kpathsea library that can be used to examine variables and find files. When the --for- mat 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.
