findwild

Findwild is a file search (search in files) utility allowing extensive wildcard selection and exclusion criteria which comes with a GUI interface and can recall past searches.


The following search criteria are available:

  • directory path to search, with multiple wildcards ( * ? ) placed anywhere
  • file name(s) to search for, with multiple wildcards anywhere
  • file name(s) to exclude, with multiple wildcards anywhere
  • file content string(s) to search for, with multiple wildcards anywhere
  • file content string(s) to exclude, with multiple wildcards anywhere
  • file creation/modification date within a desired range
  • your choice of delimiters for search strings (defaults provided)
  • search the list of files produced by the previous search

Search criteria can be saved and recalled. It is relatively easy to modify a query incrementally, to zero-in on the results you need.

Download Findwild: source files | .deb and .rpm files
