Thanks!!! I probably wouldn't have realized the part
about the spaces.
Now when the -v is put infront I can have locate
list a lot of the files for an installed package
except for the files in var and portage which I do
not care about really at this point. The bang (!)
operator gets interpreted by bash still. There may
be a way to use it though instead of -v in grep.
...@tux ~ $ locate festival | egrep -v "var|portage"
