http://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/

GNU package including find, locate, updatedb, and xargs.

I sorely miss being able to use locate Smile

findutils 4.1 (sources from 1994) compiles fine on NeXTStep 3.3. This week-end I make the package for Motorola and put it online.

Just for curious, from findutils' README:
Quote:

The locate program and its helper programs are derived (heavily
modified) from James Woods' public domain fast-find code, which is
also distributed with the 4.3BSD find. Because POSIX.2 requires `find
foo' to have the same effect as `find foo -print', the fast-find
searching has been moved to a separate program, `locate'; the same
thing has been done in 4.4BSD.


fast-find seems to be disappeared from WWW.

Hi, can you give me the URL to where you put it online? I didn't see it on the blog you have listed in your sig. Though i did find the HTTPS extension package for Omniweb 2.7-B3 which I hadn't seen before. Only HTTPS add-on I'd seen for Omniweb was for a newer version :)

btw, I tried the 4.1 sources on my machine and they would not compile.. I probably don't have something setup correctly...

http://download.tuxfamily.org/greedydotfly/ns/a/unix/findutils-4.1.N.b.tar.gz

I haven't yet a scientific method (troubles with configure parameters and makefiles) to make packages Smile then, in order to use "locate", you must add this line in your ~/.cshrc:

Code:
setenv LOCATE_PATH /usr/var/locatedb


and do it for every user in your machine. Don't worry, I make another package soon :)

Do you use this gcc http://www.savarese.org/patches/gcc.html ?

yeah, I'm using that version of GCC. I apparently had downloaded findutils v4.1.20 ... not the 4.1 sources.. the 4.1 sources seem to be compiling OK :)

Thanks!

p.s.

your package works great. thanks Smile

Just FYI. Very Happy I've packaged up findutils-4.1.20 that I've had compiled for sometime. It's compiled quad fat w/ stock compiler for NS3.3, no -posix & updatedb has been modified to find the locatedb in /usr/adm/ since it's the common place on BSD4.3. It's in the packages directory where everything else is packaged. Wink
