Platform independent implementation of Unix
whichutility that searches for executable file in the path variable.
TTY::Which provides cross-platform executables search component for TTY toolkit.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install tty-which
which method that searches set of directories for an executable file based on the
PATH environment variable.
When the path to an executable program exists, an absolute path is returned, otherwise
For example, to find location for an executable program do:
TTY::Which.which("less") # => "/usr/bin/less" TTY::Which.which("git") # => "C:\Program Files\Git\bin\git"
You can also check an absolute path to executable:
TTY::Which.which("/usr/bin/ruby") # => "/usr/bin/ruby"
You can also specify directly the paths to search using
TTY::Which.which("ruby", paths: ["/usr/local/bin", "/usr/bin", "/bin"]) # => "/usr/local/bin/ruby"
When you're only interesting in knowing that an executable exists on the system use the
TTY::Which.exist?("ruby") # => true
