Linux Tutorial Series – 64 – The which command

Here is the video version, if you prefer it:

The which command shows you the location of a given executable. (Shotts, 2019)⁠ For example:

mislav@mislavovo-racunalo:~/Linux_folder$ which cp

/usr/bin/cp

It only works for executables, not for other command types.

Hope you learned something useful!
