NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     searchbook	- (a.k.a. search tool) find files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sbin/searchbook [-file | searchbookfile]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The searchbook (or	search tool) contains named pages on which users can
     create queries to find files.  The	user can launch	searchbook from	the
     toolchest (Find > Search For Files) or at a Unix shell command line.
     This application has the ``runonce'' feature, meaning only	one instance
     of	the application	will run at one	time.  Attempting to launch the
     application a second time will have the effect of deiconifying the
     application window	or popping it to the top on the	current	desk.

     The options have effects as follows:

     -file   Opens searchbook to a fresh, blank	page.

	     Specifies the criteria for	a specific search.  Defines the
	     configuration and setup of	a searchbook page.

     Each page contains	a query	area at	the top, a Search button, and a
     results area at the bottom.  Search criteria can be added from the	Match
     menu on the menubar.  For more information	on the criteria, please	refer
     to	the online books for help about	the search tool.  The user can switch
     to	different pages	by clicking the	left mouse button on the bottom	tabs.

     As	in the iconcatalog, icons in the search	tool are references to the
     actual files.  This differs from directory	views.	Icons can not be
     dragged onto searchbook pages; icons appear there only if the user
     presses Search or if the user makes a copy	of a file icon already on that
     page.  Searchbook pages are shaded	light gray (in the default IndigoMagic
     color scheme) to indicate that icons can not be dragged onto them.
     Operations	such as	"copy" or "make	linked copy" on	icons in the search
     tool will create new files	in the user's home directory.

     The search	tool remembers each page's query, contents, size, mode of
     display, and which	page the book is open to on each desk.

     Searchbook	pages can be derived either from the system's default Files
     page or from a user's own new search pages.  Pages	derived	from the
     system's default page can be changed by the user.	To return the system
     default page to its original state, use the Remove	command.  A message
     will confirm the user's removal of	local changes.

     For more information about	the entire IRIX	Interactive Desktop
     environment, see the IID(1) man page.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]


     The searchbook stores page	information as the user	defines	the desired
     search criteria under ~/.desktop-<hostname>/searchbook or
     /usr/lib/desktop/searchbook/syspages.  The	user does not need to alter
     these files directly.  The	searchbookMark file records the	currently open
     page.  The	internal format	of these files is not guaranteed to remain
     constant between releases.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The user can create a page	with the same name as the system default page
     "Files."  Searchbook can distinguish them,	but to avoid confusion it is
     recommended that the user rename the new page.

     Sometimes after a match criterion has been	removed	or added, the vertical
     sizing of the criteria lines will be wrong.  To fix this, resize the
     window vertically a bit.
