“which” command difference

Specs: Windows XP
What is the difference between (unix-system “which [name]) and which [name] commands.

For example when I use the (unix-system “which visual_elite) command I get the following result:

/home/vhdl/edatools/mentor/visualelite/VisualElite-4.2.1/Linux2.4/bin/visual_elite

When I do the same on the command line using which visual_elite I get

enidl-atlas-schur <76> # which visual_elite visual_elite is /home/vhdl/edatools/mentor/visualelite/VisualElite-4.2.1/visual_elite

Why do I have this difference?

Thanks,
Mihaela

Your formatting is extremely poor and makes it difficult to read, identify the difference, or even tell what you are doing. Are you running these commands on different systems, such as a Unix system and a Linux system? If so, the difference may be nothing more than the difference between the SVR5 and GNU versions of the programs.
