Findview project is a simple bash script that will save the results of file search in a directory.

Here are some key features of "findview":

Supports all the same search criteria as the find command
Previous searches can be updated without needing to remember the criteria used
Symlinks used for results, so minimal disk space used

Run the following command for help.

./findview.sh -h

Findview options should be placed before the double dash (--) and the find criteria should be placed after. Here are some examples of how to use findview.

Find all .pl files in your home dir

As you can see any options after the double-dash "--" are standard find command options. The results of the find will be placed in "/tmp/view1"

./findview.sh /tmp/view1 -- ~/ -name "*.pl"

Updating a previous search's results

This will prompt you if you want to remove all the files from the current directory and use the criteria found in ".findview_search" to run the search again.

cd /tmp/view1
./findview.sh -u

What's New in This Release:

Filenames with spaces are now supported.
Relative find paths are now made absolute.
