The following is from a San Francisco MACWORLD Expo 1990 review and\ncommentary written by Bill Petro of Sun:\n\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nON LOCATION\n\nThe first eagerly awaited product from On Technology, a company started\nby Mitch Kapor, is On Location. It is a very powerful search and\nretrieval program for the Mac Plus and above. It can search for either\nfilenames or text in files, and does so as you type, matching as much as\nyou have typed. It is similar to the isearch function in emacs. On\nLocation can search several volumes, including network servers,\ndiskettes, and CD-ROMs. Once it has found what was requested, it can\ndisplay it in a viewer, often with the correct font, style, and format\nof the original application. It can display all the files by name,\nsize, kind and last modified date. From this list you can move, copy,\nrename, and delete files. It does all this blindingly fast by creating\nan index of all the filenames and text on a volume at a time when the\ncomputer is idle. This index takes about 2% of the volume.\n\nWhile this is an impressive tool, with a NeXT-esque look to it, it\ndoesn't really do much more than the venerable DiskTop 4.0 bundled with\nGOfer. It does have a whizzier interface, and is quite fast using new\ntechnologies, but is probably best used by someone who generates or uses\na great deal of text.\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n\nNote that this was an *indexed*, all files, *string* searcher "for The\nMac Plus and above . . . ". I used it intensively for years; it was in\nfact insanely great. And now, On Technology no longer exists (bought\nand absorbed by Symantec last year), and On Location isn't even listed\nin VersionTracker.
