FindUtils for Windows

FindUtils: find and then operate on files




`find' is a program which searches a directory tree to find a file or group of files. It walks the directory tree and reports all occurences of a file matching the user's specifications.

`locate' scans one or more databases of filenames and displays any matches.

`xargs' builds and executes command lines by gathering together arguments it reads on the standard input. Most often, these arguments are lists of file names generated by `find'.



If you download the Setup program of the package, any requirements for running applications, such as dynamic link libraries (DLL's) from the dependencies as listed below under Requirements, are already included. If you download the package as Zip files, then you must download and install the dependencies zip file yourself. Developer files (header files and libraries) from other packages are however not included; so if you wish to develop your own applications, you must separately install the required packages.
