This is a fairly handy little program. Doesn't seem to have a licence though - under what terms can it be distributed? This utility is nice and easy to use, but if it's too limited for what you want to do, then try a windows port of the Unix find utility. There's a port of GNU findutils here: http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/

It does what it does (run *something* recursively) very well, when that's all you need. And often that's just it. I thought it's to good to be lost. To my knowledge there's never been any kind of license on it, Case just had the compiled binary and source file uploaded, so it's not GNU compatible in anyway, I guess. I will remove it immediately if Case has any objections, though. But I guess he doesn't. There's a fair amound of his other apps being hosted elsewhere & roundabout....

GNU "find" is a very useful and versatile app. However at the cost of being
rather complex and demanding a lot of typing to initialize certain functions.
Here's a script that tries to mimic sweeps simple function on Linux:

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
[ $# -eq 2 ] || { echo "run something recursively from working directory";
                  echo "usage: `basename $0` '<command>' '<glob>'"; exit; }
echo
echo "`date "+%F %T"` running command:"
echo "find . -name \"$2\" -type f -exec $1 '{}' \;"
echo
find . -name "$2" -type f -exec $1 '{}' \;

i have kind of smarter version of sweep (reworked), which reads %s parameter, and when outputs a file, replaces it with a current folder name. so now for example its possible to sweep par.exe and get recovery volumes named with the folder name they are in.

//if any1 wants, i will upload it, but when back having an internet connection at home

I'd be interested in this new version, thanks.
