NAME

       texfind - graphical tool to search for text in TeX input files



SYNOPSIS

       texfind  [ OPTION ...  ]



DESCRIPTION

       texfind  is  a  graphical,  interactive  tool  that helps you searching
       through TeX input files, including subdirectories, and allows you to do
       search/replace  tasks using Perl regular expressions. It opens two win-
       dows: One displays the directory hierarchy and allows to select differ-
       ent  search  directories.  The second window is used to enter the query
       and display the results.



SEARCHING

       Enter a search string  in the input box at the  top,  choose  the  file
       extension  (*tex  by  default)  and  hit ENTER to start the search. The
       results will be displayed below.

       The search string is actually a perl regular expression. This gives you
       lots  of  flexibility.  The  search-and-replace function also uses Perl
       regex syntax, but you can also just use simple strings. Currently there
       is no way to save changed files.



MENU

       Use the right mouse button to open a menu.

       File : Currently only used to exit the program

       Edit : Copy selections, select or unselect all

       Search  :  Open a Find dialog that allows further searching through the
              displayed results. The Replace option can  be  used  to  replace
              single  or  all occurrences of a string, but currently it is not
              possible to change the file.

       View : Select specific lines, and adjust word or character wrapping.



OPTIONS

       --font : specify the font used for the menu. Default is courier.

       Other options probably exist  -  I  appreciate  input  by  the  program
              authors, experienced users or perl geeks.



SEE ALSO

              perlre(1)



BUGS

       None known. Well - the replace function isn’t the most useful one.
