pacfind (automated pacman -Qo)

function pacfind()
{
  LOCATION=`whereis $1 |awk -F " " '{ print $2 }'`
  echo "Finding what owns ${LOCATION}..."
  pacman -Qo ${LOCATION}
}

Thought of it today, and thought maybe it would be useful for someone.

syntax: pacfind name_of_file

The only real limititation is that it will find bins and libs first (because that's what 'whereis' lists first.

Re: pacfind (automated pacman -Qo)

whereis $1|cut -f2 -d':'| xargs pacman -Qo

faster and shows all matching files
