sometimes you type a command, e.g. "make", and wonder that it behaves totally unexpected. maybe you have several versions of the command, from different software packages, within your PATH... and according to murphy's laws, you run the wrong version, of course.
but from where within the PATH is it loaded? just type
sfk pathfind yourcommand.exe
to find out. for example:
in this example, you see that make.exe is loaded from d:\tools\msys\bin\make.exe. should there be another make.exe further down in the path, then it is ignored. you may also say "sfk where", which is the same, but shorter to type:
windows users may even leave out the file extension:
c:\app\bin\foobar.exe c:\app\bin\foobar.batsee also sfk env - search environment variables for words
