When writing bash scripts and sudoers files, it can be tedious to determine the paths of the commands. Here is a procedure to use the
which command to return the path of the selected word:
To convert a bash command to a fully-explicit bash command, the key sequence would be "w!which $(cat)". $(cat) simply uses the selected text from the pipe and uses this text as an argument to the 'which' command. This method is great for using commands that use arguments instead of stdin. However, as far as I know, it works only in bash.
This command could be mapped to a key sequence if required.
