Subject: Re: Spotlight and Leopard



The function that you probably need is FSCatalogSearch. It's a very fast function and it returns, among other data, a pointer to an array of FSRefs of the found files.
You can put this function inside a function that iterates across all mounted volumes, using FSGetVolumeInfo.
Examples can be found in the GrabBag sample code:

I'm not aware of that being removed (and typically I would be)

It's in the headers on Leopard. That example does have an issue in
that it doesn't link against Carbon. But if you do that, it compiles
without warning, and clicking on the search button brings up the
current Leopard HI for searching.

That makes more sense now - I was wondering why that totally disappeared. ;)
Due to problems with Spotlight not searching other drives on default, I have
decided on integrating the UNIX find command. Please reply with any ideas
you have regarding this, including (please) something about saving the
locations of the files that it found to an array.
