Is seems to be not portable using '-a -p':

At least it is also POSIX and builtin:
(but no commandline switches!)

it works the way you describe it on debian,
but not on e.g. OpenWRT:

root at F36-stube:~ ls -l /bin/foo /usr/sbin/foo
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root            16 Nov  8 08:31 /bin/foo
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root            16 Nov  8 08:31 /usr/sbin/foo

user at box:~ which -a foo

root at F36-stube:~ type -a -p foo
# here the returncode is != 0

bye, bastian
