I can’t find the
git 2.10 binary so I run
Excellent, found it.
And then I check it’s version to verify I am looking at the right version
git version 2.21.0
Oops that isn’t what I wanted.
There must be another
git getting loaded earlier in the search path.
Here is how to find out where all copies of
type -a git
git is /usr/local/bin/git git is /usr/local/bin/git git is /usr/bin/git
Look for the right
git at version 2.10
/usr/local/bin/git --version /usr/bin/git --version
git version 2.21.0 git version 2.14.3 (Apple Git-98)
I want the second one.
That is how to track down the location of a binary file on macOS that appears multiple times in the search path.
