MDFinder - GNUstep Finder application

SYNOPSIS


MDFinder

DESCRIPTION


This manual page documents briefly the MDFinder GNUstep application.

MDFinder is a an application to search items already indexed by the GWMetadata desktop
search and indexing system, a GNUstep implementation of MacOS X's proprietary Spotlight
(or Beagle/Tracker). Searches can be saved and are automatically updated if the
corresponding files change. Indexing is done in the background and is switched off by
default. To enable it and configure the search path, use the dedicated module in the
SystemPreferences(1) application.

There are several accompanying programs which normally are not intended to be invoked
directly by the user. Some of them run as daemons and are launched automatically. Here
is a short description:

gmds
This daemon is responsible for maintaining the indexing database, located at
$HOME/GNUstep/Library/gmds.

mdextractor
Runs in the background (if indexing is turned on) and extracts file contents, updating the
database.

mdfind
See mdfind(1).

OPTIONS


Like most GNUstep applications, MDFinder does not support any command-line options (except
the standard GNUstep ones).
