       dirvish-locate - locate file versions in dirvish images


       dirvish-locate vault[:branch] pattern


       Locate versions of files in a dirvish vault

       The index of each image specified vault is searched for paths matching pattern.  Each path
       found matching the pattern will be reported  followed  by  a  modification  time  of  each
       version of the file and all images having a link to it.

       The optional branch specification will restrict searching to the specified branch.

       Images  with  an  error status will be skipped as will any without index files.  The index
       file may be compressed by gzip or bzip2.   See  tree  and  index  in  dirvish.conf(5)  for

       The pattern is a perl regular expression to match the final component of the path.  Append
       .*  to the end of the pattern if you wish to match any substring of the whole path or $ if
       you wish to anchor the pattern to the end of the path.  See perlre(1) for details.

       Directories  are  excluded  from matching as they would wind up matching every file within
       them anyway.  Symlinks are also excluded from matching.

       If the pattern matches too many paths dirvish-locate will only report  the  paths  matched
       and  not  versions.   As  a  sanity  check  if  the  number of matches is really excessive
       dirvish-locate will limit  the  number  of  images  searched.   Excessive  matches  is  an
       indication  of an insufficiently specific pattern.  Use the resulting path list to compose
       a more specific one.


       To facilitate further automation  and  integration  of  dirvish-locate  with  other  tools
       dirvish-locate  provides  rationalised exit codes.  The exit codes are range based.  While
       the code for a specific error may change from one version to another it will remain within
       the  specified  range.  So don't test for specific exit codes but instead test for a range
       of values.  To the degree possible higher value ranges indicate more severe errors.
