Projects / HereNow


Herenow is a small utility based on the locate system. It combines commands and file types. You don't have to input the file's path, and you don't have to input the desired command. You give a keyword or full file name, and it finds the file for you and executes the command specified in the config file. In a file of configuration, you can specify the commands according to the types of files. (ex: command editor ; type text)." Also, hn can be recived command as argument.

      Release Notes: A new option "-c", which allows the user to deactivate searching in the "locate" database, was added. If the file to be treated is in the working directory, it is useless to use the "locate" utility. This option also allows the user to only take advantage of the association between commands and types. The README and config files are now in English.

        Release Notes: hn can find a file that isn't in the locate database if this file is in a directory that is in the database (hn -d dir:file). It is possible to input several options following the commands in the configuration file.
