Hi Tassilo,

Excellent direction, at least to begin with!

`locate' is installed by default via `diffutils' (in the base
distribution), but it did not return any result...

So, I've updated the database, and set up a cron job:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
5 5 * * * nice updatedb --localpaths='/cygdrive/c /cygdrive/z' 
--prunepaths='/cygdrive/c/cygwin /cygdrive/c/RECYCLER'
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Now, `locate' return the correct results, but...

it's still not visible in my `anything' buffer on Windows (while
it is described in the sources):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
        ;; source of candidates for anything
        (setq anything-sources
              (list anything-c-source-locate
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

It is like if the processes was not called or ...?  Though, I've
no error messages returned... What could I do to check where the
problem comes from?

Best regards,
