There's a utility called 'which' you can use to discover the location
of certain apps you want to learn about.

[jperrin at insanity ~]$ which htpasswd

However keep in mind that just because you can run the utility doesn't
mean that you'll have permissions to where it puts the files. It's
possible that you may have to run htpasswd as root.
