Fault tolerant search utilities: whichman, ftff, ftwhich
whichman uses a fault tolerant approximate matching algorithm to search
for man-pages that match approximately the specified name.
The fault tolerant matching is very useful in cases where you remember only
roughly the name of a command.
Example: whichman netwhat
This finds netstat.8: /usr/share/man/man8/netstat.8
ftff searches the directory tree. This is a case in-sensitive and fault
tolerant way of 'find . -name xxxx -print'.
ftwhich finds files which are in one of the directories in your PATH
and uses a fault tolerant search algorithm.
