conflict [options] [file-specifications]
Conflict displays conflicting filenames in your execution path. Unlike
the csh command which, it displays all of the (non-alias) executable
files in your path.
Conflict reports pathname conflicts by making a list of the directories
which are listed in the environment variable PATH, and then scanning
these directories for executable files. If arguments are given to this
program, the test for executable files is limited to the given names
(after stripping the directory-prefix).
The first instance of a name in a given path (and those hard-linked to
it) are marked with "*". Succeeding instances are marked with "+"
The report is sent to standard output and always shows the list of
directories. Conflicting names are reported on succeeding lines.
-c do not ignore case when comparing filenames (see -i).
specify another environment variable than PATH (e.g., INFOPATH,
for compatibility with C-preprocessor options, build up the
search path with the given directory. (The corresponding -D and
-U options are ignored.) Using the -I or -L options overrides
the use of environment variables for the search path.
-i ignore case when comparing filenames (see -c).
for compatibility with C-compiler options, build up the search
path with the given directory.
-p print pathnames only, rather than the table.
-r look for readable files
specify a list of file types which are treated as conflicting.
The option value is a list of file suffixes (a "." followed by
zero or more other characters). The list separator is the "."
which begins each suffix, e.g.,
-V print the version, exit.
-w look for writable files
expand width of display by number of columns (default: one
column per path).
-x look for executable files (the default).
You may combine the "-r", "-w" and "-x" options. If you do not specify
one of these, conflict assumes "-x".
Conflict may be used to list all conflicting names in your path (if no
arguments are given), or to find conflicts for a specified name. To
list only conflicts from a particular directory "path" you may type
conflict -a path/*
An example of the use of conflict is shown below
Current working directory is "/home/dickey/src/conflict"
Conflict runs in a POSIX environment, as well as MSDOS, Win32 and OS/2
Conflict is a single binary module, which uses no auxiliary files.
add option to get aliases from the shell
handle compound directory structures such as MANPATH.
show symbol conflicts from object files and libraries.
