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 -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 TeX source files is used.
