Re: [opensuse] which which?

Once upon a time, SuSE had a which(1) which was actually type(1) with " -a".

Recently noticed that which(1) is now actually /usr/bin/which.

Just curious, but what was the reason for the back and forth?

I'd guess that it's because which(1) is usable without a shell:

$ type type
type is a shell builtin

$ env type
env: ‘type’: No such file or directory
