NameFind is a GUI for the Unix "find" command-line tool, installed by default on Mac OS X. Enter a search term, specify your search directory, and run the search query: NameFind will present a list of all files that match the search name. NameFind is designed to be an alternative to the Mac's built-in Spotlight search technology. It uses a different file search algorithm to find files, either on your entire hard drive or in a specific directory. Spotlight is powerful, but it is slow and complex, and does not even search all directories on your system by default. If all you want to do is find a file by its name, Spotlight is not the best alternative. NameFind provides a faster and easier solution for this need. It is an excellent alternative or supplement to Spotlight.
