No argument from me, I spend a fair amount of time in bash on Linux, and which
works perfectly over there. But the claim was made that /usr/bin/which
doesn't work 100% for non-csh shells on NetBSD, and that seems to be correct:
$ uname -mv
NetBSD 1.6 (GENERIC) #0: Sun Sep 8 19:43:40 UTC 2002
$ echo $SHELL
$ which which
... deleted ...
$ which autoload
no autoload in /sbin /usr/sbin /sbin /usr/sbin /usr/bin /bin /usr/pkg/bin
