Kat - Desktop Search Engine for Linux 0.6.4 Description:
Kat is an application for KDE designed to index files. Meta information, fulltext and thumbnails are extracted from documents, images, mp3 and other media allowing quick and accurate information retrieval. Similar to the Windows application WhereIsIt, but also similar to Google Desktop Search, Kat is completely written in C++, using Qt3, KDE and KIO libraries. The application is based on the extensible kfile plugin architecture of KDE in order to facilitate the creation of new media managers for emerging file formats.
