ldesc: "A utility for finding files that match a boolean expression. It
supports AND, OR and NOT as well as the NEAR operator for locating two
expressions within a short distance from each other. The program has
separate text processing and HTML processing algorithms; the former

hyphens. The latter understands many features of the HTML 4.01
standard. This program is part of the GNU project."
