    Locate the binary, source, and manual page files for a command, for example

    $ whereis ls
    ls: /bin/ls /usr/share/man/man1/ls.1.gz

    Display one-line manual page descriptions, for example
    $ whatis ls
    ls (1) – list directory contents

    Determine file type
    $ file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
    /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: ASCII text

    The variable name should be $i(cat list.txt).
