[ < ] [ > ]   [ << ] [ Up ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

3.5 kpsewhich: Standalone path searching

The Kpsewhich program exercises the path searching functionality independent of any particular application. This can also be useful as a sort of find program to locate files in your TeX hierarchies, perhaps in administrative scripts. It is used heavily in the distributed `mktex...' scripts.

Synopsis:
 
kpsewhich option... filename...

The options and filename(s) to look up can be intermixed. Options can start with either `-' or `--', and any unambiguous abbreviation is accepted.

3.5.1 Path searching options  Changing the mode, resolution, etc.
3.5.2 Auxiliary tasks  Path and variable expansion.
3.5.3 Standard options  --help and --version.
