'Find' 'Updatedb' or find database replacement for Solaris 2.X?

Post by Dave Lyn » Tue, 28 Jun 1994 03:07:24



        I've grown to love the SunOS 4.1.3 /usr/lib/updatedb,
        but it's not in Solaris 2.X. Anyone know where I can
        find a 2.X replacement. Archie was not able to :-(

GNU's find package includes the locate command, which does a "fast find" as
you require.

1. Replacement for 'find'?

 Does anyone know of a better utility than the stock 'find' command? I'm
trying to get find to make a file listing while omitting certain directories
and files and it just doesnt seem to work and I can find zero help on this
particular functionality of find despit coming through the oreilly books, man
pages, and google.
 Does anyone know of a replacement for find that maybe a bit more useful or
intuitive? Thanks..

This is what I'm trying to do:
/bin/nice /usr/bin/find / -mtime -3 -print -path /proc -o -name 'kcore*'
-prune> /root/backupfiles

 ..aiming to get a listing of all files omitting the /proc files and the
"kcore" file..
