Entering "beagle" goes no where, "bash: beagle: command not found"

I don't find a "man page" for it.  Perhaps I could simply remove it via yum?
Or is there some trick to getting it to do something?  Google has not

Any help appreciated.

You need to start *beagled* before you can do anything with
beagle. There is no beagle command actually. After you start
`beagled', type `beagle-search' to use it. If you don't start beagled,
you will get `Search service not running' error.

Where does documentation for Beagle exit? Why would it be useful? If I
don't want it (which I suspect is the case), how do I disable and/or
uninstall it?

The following is a SUSE linux 10.0 description of beagle. Hope it
helps ;-)

Ok, "beagle-search" was the command I needed!  I spent the last fifteen
minutes messing with that and now I know that it's another learning effort. I will keep it and see what use I can make of it.

Thanks to all ...
