GNUstep cookbook: code browser.

Hi folks,

this is to announce a new recipe that I have added to the cookbook;
the URL is 


Please let me know if there are any problems with the TGZ or ZIP
archives, or if there are any bugs that remain in the program.

This recipe implements a search and find utility with "find" and
"grep." It may be used to search a code base of, say, Objective C code
for certain code snippets for use in writing an application. It
provides support for coding by "copy-and-paste." Try pointing it to

and browsing the GNUstep code base.

The basic idea is to run "find" on a directory in order to locate a
set of files that match a shell pattern or a regular expression. We
run "grep" for each file and look for a certain pattern. Matching
lines including some context are collected and displayed for
viewing. The user may inspect an entire file if she wishes.

There is a blue progress indicator that is displayed as files are

I would be curious to know if this recipe compiles on Mac OS X. You
might have to set the location of the binaries with "defaults write
BrowseIt find /path/to/find" etc.

For N. Roard: would you run this through your LaTeX -> HTML converter
please, assuming it's not too much trouble.

Best regards,
