mlocate is a new locate implementation. The ‘m’ stands for “merging”: updatedb reuses the existing database to avoid rereading most of the file system, which makes updatedb faster and does not trash the system caches as much.
The locate(1) utility is intended to be completely compatible to
... [More] slocate. It also attempts to be compatible to GNU locate, when it does not conflict with slocate compatibility. [Less]
uffts (ultra-fast fulltext search) will first index all text files (and eventually doc, opendocument, etc.), and allow you to perform near-instant searches within all of them. A special tree designed around ascii text, which results in compression for large amounts of data, should make it possible
... [More] to instantly search gigabytes of source code, all indexed in memory. [Less]
Like the Linux "locate" and "updatedb", "winlocate" is a very simple solution for finding files and folders in a windows environment system. All is done by using 2 scripts (.BAT), some GNU tools and Sqlite3. I hope you will enjoy this release.
