    Every time I use the "Search" function in Finder, I am always flooded with a tonne of *.h files (Objective-C). I have a few questions regarding the matter:

    - What are Obj-C files doing in OS X, and why so many of them?

    - How can I make the "Search" function only come up with my files, and not system files?

    - How can I make the "Search" function only show results from the current directory, and not the whole system?

    They are source files -- computer code. ObjectiveC is the language that most OS X apps are written in.
    Have you installed Xcode?

    You could try turning off the Developer item in Spotlight Preferences > Search Results.
