An application usually consists of 3 different file types :
- binary files
- configuration files
- application data
Where does Linux (CentOS, RHEL) store the binary files for a given application / how can I find it out for an application ?
You can use
whereis for this task.
$ whereis python3 python3: /usr/bin/python3.5m /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/python3.5 /usr/lib/python3 /usr/lib/python3.5 /etc/python3 /usr/local/lib/python3.5 /usr/share/python3 /usr/share/man/man1/python3.1.gz
