  25. 25. Also other things (from website) Easy installation, few dependencies. No database daemon, web server, desktop environment or exotic language necessary. Will run on most Unix-based systems, and on MS-Windows too. Qt 4 GUI, plus command line, Unity Lens, KIO and krunner interfaces. Searches most common document types, emails and their attachments. Transparently handles decompression (gzip, bzip2). Powerful query facilities, with boolean searches, phrases, proximity, wildcards, filter on file types and directory tree. Multi-language and multi-character set with Unicode based internals. Extensive documentation, with a complete user manual and manual pages for each command.
