Hello everybody,

Is it possible to perform a search for the conjunction of paths matching
the patterns? By default, locate displays paths that match any result,
but, more often than not, actually, I would like to search for paths
that match several patterns. Right now I just pipe it through grep a few
times, but that gets tedious quickly :)

Unfortunately, a Google search for "locate and" does not turn up too
many useful results.

Come to think of it, I suppose a simple shell script could do the
trick.. oh well, just wondering if there is a cleaner way.

P.S.: There is an error on <http://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/> in
the last sentence of the second paragraph under the "How to Get Help"
heading. It says that the word "subscribe" should be put in the body of
the e-mail instead of the subject (as the mailto: in the href of that
particular piece of text suggests).
