grepath - find executables in PATH that match PATTERN

Project description

grepath utility prints full path to executables that match given file-pattern or regular expression.

Examples:

  • To print executables that contain ‘pdf’ anywhere in their name:

    $ grepath pdf
    /usr/bin/ps2pdf12
    /usr/bin/ps2pdf13
    ...[snip]...
    /usr/bin/simpdftex
    /usr/bin/dvipdf
    
  • To find executables that don’t have ‘e’ after ‘win’ in their name:

    C:\> grepath -e "win[^e]"
    C:\windows\system32\winhlp32.exe
    C:\windows\system32\winver.exe
    C:\windows\winhlp32.exe
    C:\windows\winhelp.exe
    

    If *.py files are not associated with python.exe then the script can be invoked using:

    C:\> python \path\to\grepath.py --help
    

To print all available options, type:

$ grepath --help
