I'm pretty much fed up with Spotlight. On Linux apps I use Locate, which is really efficient.
but setting up and keep the locate dbase on mac is also frought with issues. it will not index $Home which is weird. FIND is slower of course, but perfectly effective. this: find ~/ -iname *.livecode from terminal get me *every* with .livecode in my user folder. in my UI's for locate I just get all the results into a var, then filter that var with strings and update the results field… works great, very fast. But this, inside the msg box: put "find ~/ -iname *.livecode" into tShell put shell(tShell) is only returning a single line: /Users/Brahmanathaswami//OneDrive/_RevData/Books in Rev/HAP_Trilogy Reader Source/source/HAP_Trilogy-Reader1-1.livecode Why don't we get all the results we do in terminal?
