find where a binary is located in linux with type and whereis http://bit.ly/mPX8JJ via linuxscrew.com @artiomix

From www.linuxscrew.com

There are two commands that may help you to find where executable binary is located regardless it’s Unix or Linux system. They are whereis and type.

whereis locates source/binary and manuals sections for specified files and type tells what exactly shell executes when you type a certain command.
