findutils 4.7.0 Operating on files matching given criteria

This is a GNU package.

Findutils supplies the basic file directory searching utilities of the GNU system. It consists of two primary searching utilities: "find" recursively searches for files in a directory according to given criteria and "locate" lists files in a database that match a query. Two auxiliary tools are included: "updatedb" updates the file name database and "xargs" may be used to apply commands with arbitrarily long arguments.
