Wednesday 31 August 2005, by Jean-Baptiste Le Stang

XFind is an osax for Mac OS X (10.4 aka Tiger), this is a little replacement to the broken ’find’ command of the Finder.

XFind 1.0

The search window of the Finder is very basi, it does not allow to use serach patterns such as "*.png", however :

To search a file whose name is foobar or contains the word foobar and is of kind PDf then you should do :

spotlight find "foobar kind:pdf"

Or le whose name is foobar or contains the word foobar and is of kind PDF and was accessed yesterday :

spotlight find "foobar kind:pdf date:yesterday"
