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 documen-
       tation 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.
