Launch with F6 key or from start menu.

Instructions. Launch keystroke should be F6.
Choose a target ie a folder or partition.
Enter part of filename and press Enter key.


Note that some puppies use /mnt/home
to refer to the partition where Puppy has been installed
but this is not a consistent practise.




I would appreciate reports of bugs

Upgraded to version 1.7 to be useful in
full install situations . Also put in a feature to
find a file that was created within a specified date.

I noticed different behaviour on different Puppies.
For instance special characters and foreign characters would
stop the find action on some Puppies (such as Saluki???)

I will continue to test. But the user should test the
effectiveness of Monkey find by creating some files in /root
with strange names with foreign character and special
characters. Then launch Monkey find, select /root for the target
and see if Monkey Find can find the files. Pemasu's Exprimo did
a good job .
