Doodle quickly searches the documents on a computer, then builds an index using meta-data contained in the documents and allows fast searches on the resulting database. It supports approximate searches and full-text indexing, and comes with a library for accessing the doodle database and making it easy to integrate doodle's functionality into other applications or user interfaces. Users can keep the doodle database always up-to-date by updating the database on-the-fly by using 'doodled' and 'fam' whenever files on the system change. They can also build one doodle database for all users on a multi-user system without compromising user privacy.
