comment Faster alternatives to “find” and “locate”?
@KAK, I would like to use the output of find/locate to open a file in emacs. the use case I have in mind is, I wish to edit the file, I type the file name (or some regexp matching the file name) into emacs, and emacs will use find/locate to bring up a list of files matching it, so I will like response time fast enough to be interactive (under 1 second). I have about 3 million files in $HOME, one thing I can do is make my find command prune out some of the files.
