* Package name    : spot
  Version         : 1.0
  Upstream Author : Guillermo Rauch <>
* URL             :
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: Bash
  Description     : Tiny file search utility

Tiny ack-style file search utility.

 * Short & written in Bash: you can edit it easily to suit your liking.
 * Fast. Just find + grep.
 * Searches most things by default instead of some known predefined extensions.
 * Ignores .git, .svn, devices and binary files.
 * All arguments constitute the search text. No need to wrap most searches in double quotes.
 * spot is case-insensitive by default. However, if your search term contains an uppercase letter, it becomes sensitive!
 * If the first argument contains a slash and is a valid directory, the search is constrained to that particular target.
