Work with "which v2.4" (really old!) on Windows? #30
On Linux we work with "which" to find out if a backend exists without actually starting the backend.
On Windows we normally don't have "which", but if GNU which is installed, it somehow doesn't detect if a backend exists.
Thanks @jesus2099 for reporting.
Hm. The "which" from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages.html does work with
You said you have "GNU which v2.4". I can only find a GNU which v2.13 (from 2002) at gnuwin, but that one has the same problem you mention.
I would highly advise you to get an newer "which" and possibly also update the other tools. unxutils seems outdated by a lot (most tools are from 1999 Oo) Better use gnuwin32.
I will still fix this for the unxutils which.
Oh my... "which v2.4" is even more broken than I thought.
Well it might even work for you, but right now I just think telling everybody that UnxUtils is crap is the way to go.
Sorry, I am a bit frustrated about UnxUtils. Not your fault ;-)
Either way: I suggest http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/ (there are single programs, but also a whole package)
