Version 3.1 Bug fix. "Yesterday" wasn't working correctly since bash can't handle digits with leading 0 (another reason why I use my own mc calculator in personal scripts).

jpeps,
That can be a useful little utility! I have downloaded it to try it out.

Found this spelling mistake


Also the button at the bottom of your child window
could be changed

Code:

<hbox>
  <button ok>
    <action type="closewindow">OUTPUT</action>
  </button>
</hbox>


or this code will center the icons using hard spaces

Code:

<hbox> 
    <button ok>
    <action type="closewindow">OUTPUT</action>
    </button>
    <text><label>                                          </label></text>
</hbox>

Added cache finder button. Finds cache files in chosen directory, sorted by file size. This is useful when your save file space keeps decreasing, and you don't know why. (note: ignores "depth" setting).

It is possible to control the width of a combobox .
Two hbox widgets are needed.

I changed your code a bit and made the month change....

Code:
<hbox> 
    <text>
     <label>Month</label>
    </text>
    <hbox>
    <combobox  width-request="77" tooltip-text="Select month">

Accepted as an essential application... make searches faster because range is reduced... Pfind has the criteria, but not taken in account... or i am a silly user...

Pfind provides the same search criteria, and some more, but the explanation is wrong...or better, it's misplaced.

Why would anyone want it to work? I don't understand why someone needs to know the access time... ah, no, access "date", which I find even less useful. That's a serious question because I have found the atime pretty unreliable. It doesn't necessarily indicate the time when a file was accessed for reading (that is what I would like to know) and it can be suppressed by an application to increase performance.

Strangely Access-Finder doesn't allow to search for a much more important property, the ctime.
