Name

wfdbwhich - find a WFDB file and print its pathname

Synopsis

wfdbwhich [ -r record ] filename
wfdbwhich [ -r record ] file-type record

Description

This program searches the WFDB path (as specified by the environment variable WFDB, see setwfdb(1) ) for a specified filename, or for a file of a specified file-type (e.g., ‘hea’ or ‘atr’) that belongs to a specified record. If the file can be found, its full pathname is written to the standard output, and wfdbwhich exits with an exit status of zero (indicating success). If the file cannot be found, a diagnostic message, including the current value of the WFDB path, is written to the standard error output, and wfdbwhich exits with a non-zero exit status.

If the WFDB path includes ‘%r’, use the -r record option to specify the record name to be substituted for ‘%r’.

Environment

It may be necessary to set and export the shell variable WFDB (see setwfdb(1) ).
