A tool to edit spotlight rules
Authored by: trangised on Feb 28, '06 10:50:35AM

Spotlight has a set of rules for what it indexes. The set of rules starts with a hard coded list of things to include and ignore. On top of that, a second layer of things to include and ignore can be added. The application called Tiger Tamer lets you edit the second set of rules. The rules are specific to each hard drive.

Tiger Tamer does some other things, most of which are useless. I wrote it, and I use it, but I would not recommend it unless you know what you are doing.
