One thing I also did with this just for fun was set up a separate locate database for perl modules. Copied the updatedb to pmupdatedb, changed the find command line to just pmdesc2.pl
, changed the locatedb name to pmlocatedb, and then set up an alias, alias pmlocate 'locate -d /usr/local/var/pmlocatedb'
(I have a very slow machine at home...)
