AudioLink is a tool that makes searching for music on your local storage media easier and faster.
.AudioLink is a tool that makes searching for music on your local storage media easier and faster. Your searches can include a variety of criteria, like male artists, female artists, band, genre, etc. It is flexible, you have options of using a command line interface, multiple choices of GUIs, designing your own search criteria, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Currently, it's called AudioLink, 'cos the first milestone would just handle audio files... subsequent versions will be capable of searching for content in HTMLs, PDFs, PSs and other file formats.

This project started with my need of searching for files on my local machine, be it music or any stored information in .txt, .html, .pdf formats. The main goal of the software is to make searching for _content_ on local file systems (or remote file systems mounted in the local namespace) easier. This differs from other search tools, which look for files, not content. You can't use traditional tools like grep to search for songs or a particular artist, for example.

If you are in search of such a tool, AudioLink is the right choice for you for you!

The project will further be improved upon to include a LAN crawler, which will sniff on NFS, SMB, FTP, among other protocols, to collect information on the files residing on other machines as well.
