NAME
       mate-search-tool	- the MATE Search Tool

SYNOPSIS
       mate-search-tool	[options]

       or select Search	for Files...  from a Main Menu or from the Places menu
       in a Menu Bar

DESCRIPTION
       MATE Search Tool	is a utility for finding files on your system. To per-
       form  a	basic  search,	you can	type a filename	or a partial filename,
       with or without wildcards. To refine your search, you can  apply	 addi-
       tional search options.

       MATE  Search  Tool  uses	 the find, grep, and locate UNIX commands. The
       case sensitivity	of the search depends on your  operating  system.  For
       example,	 on  Linux, the	find, grep, and	locate commands	support	the -i
       option, so all searches are case-insensitive.

       For full	documentation see the MATE Search Tool online help.
