    It doesn't. But even on Unix I have no guarantee that which will be installed on the system.

      That exactly. And additionally, "which" might produce considerably different results in a (perl) script than on the command prompt, as some shells have "which" as a builtin or alias, so people *think* they have which (program) but in fact use the shell functionality.
