NAME

       mate-search-tool - the MATE Search Tool

SYNOPSIS

       mate-search-tool [options]

       or select Search for Files...  from a Main Menu or from the Places menu in a Menu Bar

DESCRIPTION

       MATE Search Tool is a utility for finding files on your system. To perform a basic search,
       you can type a filename or a partial filename, with or without wildcards. To  refine  your
       search, you can apply additional search options.

       MATE  Search  Tool  uses the find, grep, and locate UNIX commands. The case sensitivity of
       the search depends on your operating system. For example, on Linux, the  find,  grep,  and
       locate commands support the -i option, so all searches are case-insensitive.

       For full documentation see the MATE Search Tool online help.
