Re: listing all executables by prefix?

I think you have to be a bit careful that the hash database is set up;
it isn't immediately after zsh -f or a rehash.  I don't think you lose
much by using

ls -l "${(@f)$(whence -pm prefix\*)}"

instead.  (Of course you really need to check the expansion isn't going
to be empty first.)
