Muscand is a FAM service that scans paths already configured by muscan(1) or musetup(1). If it detects changes to the paths, it will update the Shares Database it is watching after a few seconds. There are two available shares databases, Normal and Buddies-Only. Buddies-Only is an optional shares database that, if enabled, is only accessible by the users you've chosen as "Buddies".
Before running muscand, you will need a configured museekd, which can be done with musetup(1) or fI>musetup-gtk(1), and add some shared paths with either of the setup tools or with muscan(1).
Muscand accepts the following options:
-c <filename>, --config <filename>
Use a different config file.

Display Help, version and exit.
Be verbose while scanning shares.
