Approximate matching searching utilities to search for manpages and files.
This package holds THREE little search utilities:
* whichman -- search utility for man pages and it works
much like the well known Unix command "where".
* ftff -- a fault tolerant file finder
ftff works like the whichman above but searches the directory
tree. This is a case in-sensitive and fault tolerant way of
'find . -name xxxx -print'
* ftwhich -- a fault tolerant "which" command
ftwhich finds files (programs) which are in one of the directories in
your PATH and uses a fault tolerant search algorithm.
