PathLocate is a small command line utility that allows you to quickly search for files located in directories listed in the PATH environment variable.

The program allows you to enter many names/masks of files on one command line, limit the number of returned files, ignore or take into account the size of characters, calculate CRC32 checksums, display the last modification time of files, their size, VersionInfo block from executable files (on Windows) and other.


How to uninstall?

PathLocate application is distributed in the form of archive and does not require any special uninstall process. To uninstall it, just delete files previously extracted from the archive.
