Hi Karl (or whoever monitors this address),

Regarding the list of names for --show-path, §7.2.2 of the texlive doc in TEXMFDIST/doc/texlive, that is


refers to --format which refers in turn to "kpsewhich --help", yielding

-format=NAME           use file type NAME (see list below).
-show-path=NAME        output search path for file type NAME (list below).

There is no list below, unfortunately, just
Email bug reports to tex-k at tug.org.
Kpathsea home page: http://tug.org/kpathsea/

Actually the list may be found in §§5.5.1 and 6.1 of the kpathsea doc in TEXMFDIST/doc/kpathsea, that is 


but it seems it's been overlooked at some point when updating the texlive and kpathsea docs.

Or am I missing something?
