This isn't a comment, more a correction. although the article was very informative too =P


About half way down the page (2) you bring up the port glimpse.


"The first time you want to use glimpse, go to your home directory (I'm assuming the information you want to find is somewhere in your home directory and its subdirectories) and build the database like so:


cd
glimpseindex -o


This is glimpseindex version 4.12, 1999.
Indexing "/home/genisis" ...
Size of files being indexed = 6437564 B, Total #of files = 850
Index-directory: "/usr/home/genisis"
Glimpse-files created here:
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 35658 Jan 13 19:52 .glimpse_filenames
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 3400 Jan 13 19:52 .glimpse_filenames_index
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 0 Jan 13 19:51 .glimpse_filetimes
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 510659 Jan 13 19:52 .glimpse_index
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 863 Jan 13 19:52 .glimpse_messages
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 342572 Jan 13 19:52 .glimpse_partitions
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 130 Jan 13 19:52 .glimpse_statistics
-rw------- 1 genisis wheel 262144 Jan 13 19:52 .glimpse_turbo"



the actual syntax (from the manpage) is glimpseindex -o ~ (~ being your home dir or whatever dir you want to index)
