Description: Personally, on a Linux system, I use locate very regularly. The problem is that I have a couple Win32 systems that I use, and, of course, there isn't a tool like locate. So I wrote this. I use it quite a bit, so I thought I'd share it here in the hopes that others would find it useful. I tried to be as compliant with the GNU locate command as possible, plus I added a few simple features that I needed but weren't part of the GNU locate specifications.

There are a few variables that you'll want to alter to suit the needs of your system. Comments welcome.

    Maybe you should get in contact with the guys from PPT, a quick check there showed that locate has not been implemented yet.
