KFIND(1) KDE User's Manual KFIND(1)NAME
kfind - file find utility for KDE
kfind [searchpath] [KDE Generic Options] [Qt Generic Options]
The Find Files tool is a useful method of searching for specific files on your computer, or for searching for files that match a pattern.
An example of this could include searching for files of a particular type or with certain letters in the filename, or that contain a
certain piece of text in their contents.
KFind is a graphical tool, and not normally run from the command line.
You may optionally supply a colon separated path to prefill the dialog. You might use this ability to set up different icons on your
panel or desktop to quickly run searches in different locations.
More detailed user documentation is available from help:/kfind (either enter this URL into Konqueror, or run khelpcenter help:/kfind).
A list of contributors is available in the complete user manual available in khelpcenter.

KATE(1) KDE User's Manual KATE(1)NAME
kate - Advanced text editor for KDE
kate [-s, --start name] [-u, --use] [-p, --pid pid] [-e, --encoding name] [-l, --line line] [-c, --column column] [-i, --stdin]
[KDE Generic Options] [Qt Generic Options]
Kate is the KDE Advanced Text Editor.
Kate also provides the editor part for various applications, under the name KWrite.
Some of Kate's many features include configurable syntax highlighting for languages ranging from C and C++ to HTML to bash scripts, the
ability to create and maintain projects, a multiple document interface (MDI), and a self-contained terminal emulator.
But Kate is more than a programmer's editor. Its ability to open several files at once makes it ideal for editing UNIX(R)'s many configura-
tion files. This document was written in Kate.
OPTIONS -s, --start name
Start Kate with a given session.
Use an already running Kate
-p, --pid pid
Only try to reuse kate instance with this pid
-e, --encoding name
Set encoding for the file to open
You can use this to force a file opened in utf-8 format, for instance. (The command iconv -l provides a list of encodings, which may
be helpful to you.)
-l, --line line
Navigate to this line
-c, --column column
Navigate to this column
Read the contents of stdin
More detailed user documentation is available from help:/kate (either enter this URL into Konqueror, or run khelpcenter help:/kate).
There is also further information available at the Kate website: http://kate.kde.org/.
To open a file named source.cpp at column 15, line 25, in an existing Kate window, you could use:
kate -c 15 -l 25 -u source.cpp
If you have an active internet connection, you can take advantage of KDE's network transparency to open a file from an ftp site. If you do
not have write permission on the remote server, the file will be opened read only and you will be prompted for a local filename to save to
if you make changes. If you do have write permission, changes will be saved transparently over the network.
The maintainer of Kate is Christoph Cullmann <firstname.lastname@example.org>. A comprehensive list of authors and contributors is available in the com-
plete user manual mentioned above.
