comment Finding the definition of a bash function
I've found it useful for the purpose of tracking down the declaration to use this and find out whether it's an alias or function, and to know the syntax with which it was declared. It's true though that only @HairOfTheDog's answer gives the file directly.

comment How to use ack to search for file name

comment How to use ack to search for file name
find and ack behave differently since ack filters out a lot of results by default (contents of version control directories, compiled objects in a source repository) that would be included by find. The best hammer depends on the results you want.

Thanks for that note. I see now that "which" only resolves functions in zsh, not bash.
