Yet another file find utility

April 16, 2019 by peter@pmoylan.org

The program 'ffind' is what I use to search for files on my hard drive. You can fetch it from
www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/software.html
or from
ftp://ftp.pmoylan.org/software/ffind_1.0.zip
or from Hobbes.


This is a command-line utility that allows wildcards in specifying the files to search for. The output is a list of files (with full path names, of course) that satisfy the search criterion. Optionally, you can specify that the files must contain a given character string.


Example 1: ffind c:*.prj
Example 2: ffind d:dev**srcprogname.* 'fresh fish'


The first example searches all of drive C: for files named *.prj. The second example searches all directories matching the pattern d:dev**src, and all subdirectories of those directories, for files progname.* that contain the character string 'fresh fish'.


Source code is included.
