Findview - Help
Run the following command for help.
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
