SYNOPSIS

kpsewhich [options] [filenames]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X 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 -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 extension is found, the search path for T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X source files is used.
