texfind - graphical tool to search for text in TeX input files
texfind [ OPTION ... ]
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.
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.
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.
--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.
None known. Well - the replace function isn’t the most useful one.
