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  com-
       plete  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 kpath-
       sea 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
       extesion is found, the search path for TeX source files is
       used.
