Linux common commands-57: whereis

The whereis command is used to locate the path of the command’s binary program, source code file, and man page and other related files. Its search speed is very fast, because it does not search in the disk, but queries in a database, which is automatically created by the linux system and contains information about all local files.

Syntax format: whereis [parameter] [command name]

Common parameters:


 whereis ls

 # 只显示二进制文件的路径whereis -b ls
