    66is probably one of the most contentious issues we have on the mailing
    77lists.  It has resulted in at least one flame war in the recent past.
    8 To hopefully put an end to this once and for all, we here present the
    9 various options for equipping your system with "which".</para>
     8To hopefully put an end to this once and for all, we here present two of
     9the options for equipping your system with "which".</para>
    1010
    11 <para>The first option is simply to use a bash alias:</para>
    12 <screen>alias which='type -p'</screen>
    13 <para>This command can be put in your
    14 <filename>~/.bash_profile</filename> or <filename>~/.bashrc</filename>
    15 file in order to be set up each time you log in (see man bash for more
    16 information on the bash login files).  This will not always work
    17 however, for example it will fail when a program needs to use "which"
    18 but
    19 doesn't spawn a shell.</para>
     11<para>The first option is to install the actual GNU program
     12<emphasis>which</emphasis>.</para>

    21 <para>The second option is to create a simple script:</para>

     15&which-inst;
     16&which-desc;

     18<sect2><title>The 'which' script</title>
     19<para>The second option (for those who don't want to install the program)
     20is to create a simple script:</para>
    2221<para><screen><userinput>cat &gt; /usr/bin/which &lt;&lt; "EOF"</userinput>
    2322#!/bin/bash
     
    2827<para>This should generally work OK and is probably the easiest solution
    2928for boxes which don't need a good user environment to work in.</para>
