HASH

Remember the full pathnames of commands specified as name arguments, so they need not be searched for on subsequent invocations.

SYNTAX
hash [-r] [-p filename] [name]

OPTIONS
-r Reset (causes the shell to forget all remembered locations)
-p Use filename as the location of name (don&qt;&qt;t search $PATH)The commands are found by searching through the directories listed in $PATH.

If no arguments are given, information about remembered commands is printed.

The return status is zero unless a name is not found or an invalid option is supplied.

This is a BOURNE shell command.
