    Author here. I’m here to answer any question regarding features or implementation.

    1. 1

      Thank you for putting this in AUR and making it easier for Arch folks to install! I was trying to use it with the shell companion example in the readme, and it as really slow indexing(?) things and displaying them. (e.g. sometimes 1-2 seconds per keystroke). I use zsh as my shell, and the disk is a really fast nvme.

        Actually the AUR package was made by me after finding the project through this post. :p

          Ah, well thank you! (Sorry I missed that, I didn’t look too closely to see who submitted it!)

        So, why did you name your program dick? It makes me nervous about using it.

          Well… One has to have some fun… That was by far the proposal which got most votes when I proposed it on my chat where most users are French speaking…

          But I’ll remove the “pronounced b-root” part and let people pronounce it as they feel it.

            broute though means browse, so it seemed quite fitting. I didn’t even think of the old fashioned “biroute” when I read “broot”.

              Well, the author edited it out of the Readme, and the command line help too. A Good Thing, because it’s a cool project.😎

          To be completely honest, I think the project’s README has a lot more information!

            Going to give it a try :)
