Approximate matching utilities to search for manpages and files

Approximate matching searching utilities to search for manpages and files.

This package holds THREE little search utilities

  • whichman – search utility for man pages and it works much like the well known Unix command “where”.

  • ftff – a fault tolerant file finder

    ftff works like the whichman above but searches the directory tree. This is a case in-sensitive and fault tolerant way of ‘find . -name xxxx -print’

  • ftwhich – a fault tolerant “which” command

    ftwhich finds files programs which are in one of the directories in your PATH and uses a fault tolerant search algorithm.
