Slackware Linux Tip-of-the-day: Slackware Package Search

I found http://slackfind.net, this site indexes multiple package mirrors and allows you to search for pre-built Slackware packages from multiple sites at once.  

As with nearly all packages, the slackbuild scripts are located in the /usr/doc/{app}/ directories of the files, you can access them after you extract the contents using explodepkg and potentially use.them to rebuild or customize the packages.
