 * The '''which''' program has been deprecated, and writes a warning to standard error (but still works, so long as stderr is not being captured along with stdout). Shell script writers are advised to use '''command -v''' instead. Interactive DebianPkg:bash shell users are advised to use '''type''', or '''type -a'''. In DebianPkg:zsh `which` is already a shell builtin, so interactive zsh users are not affected.
