It works like a charm! One small problem is -- i cannot start it if working remotely (e.g. via SSH without X-forwarding). Wrapping "jGui = new JFindGUI();" inside a try-catch (or some smarted detection of headless jvm) and falling back to non-GUI version would probably help in such cases.
1.2 worked great after I made two changes to JFind.java. The biggest problem (which kept it from working at all) was removing the toLowerCase() in line 201 (maybe that worked in Windows - but not on my Mac). The second problem was some hidden files are being treated as a directory, throwing an null pointer exception. was fixed by changing line 97 from: for (int i = 0; i < contents.length; i++) to: for (int i = 0; contents != null && i < contents.length; i++) If anyone needs a binary just email me scott at mcintoshes dot com
