NAME

       gnome-search-tool - the GNOME Search Tool

SYNOPSIS

       gnome-search-tool [options]

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

DESCRIPTION

       GNOME 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.

       GNOME  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 GNOME Search Tool online help.
