NAME

       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).

SEE ALSO

       mdfind(1), SystemPreferences(1), GWorkspace(1), GNUstep(7)

AUTHORS

       MDFinder and GWMetadata were written by Enrico Sersale.

       This  manual  page  was added by Yavor Doganov <yavor@gnu.org> for the Debian distribution
       because the original program does not have one.
