Summary: A GNOME version of the GNU "find" utility.
gnome-find is a graphical, GNOME version of the GNU "find" utility.

It is not just a front-end which just forks and execs "find", nor is
it a utility that reinvents the wheel by rewriting the "find" utility

The original source code to the GNU "find" utility (as found in
findutils-4.1) was used, and a GUI component was integrated into it.
Consequently, the actual file finding backend component is based on
the very stable and mature code in GNU "find", while the GUI component
provides a modern, easy-to-use interface.

By making it a truely graphical program, it avoids the common
portability problems typically encountered by front-ends when they run
on systems without GNU "find", as well as avoiding messy issues with
forking a new process and communicating with it (e.g., pipes,
temporary files, etc.).

It is by far more powerful than any other GUI-based "find" utility,
including "kfind" and "gsearchtool" (aka "GNOME Search Tool").
