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.
