       kpsewhich - standalone path lookup and and expansion for	kpathsea

       kpsewhich [options] [filenames]

       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.

       kpsewhich accepts the following options:

       -debug num
	      Set debugging flags.

       -D num Use a base resolution of num; the	default, set by	the installer,
	      is typically 600.

	      As -D.

	      names, or	use the	-help option to	print the list.
