which(1) is not POSIX. "command -v" is.

But Linux is not POSIX. That's what the Linux Standard Base (LSB) is for and even Debian hasn't adhered to LSB for years.

POSIX sucks unless you work in an homogenous env. And it still sucks.

Amazingly, the word "linux" is not mentioned once in the article you quote!

Linux is only a kernel and not an OS, like GNU! 😜



"I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully function GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities, and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX."

I was merely commenting on the thing YOU shared!
