sort matches strictly based on date created criteria?
« on: February 20, 2008, 04:15:33 PM »
Is this possible in the current version of FARR: The user does a regular search which yields N number of matches. Because a special command was added to the search FARR sorts the matches strictly based on the date the files where created (the newest are displayed first). This date sorting should override any other ranking rules.

Just to make things clear, I only want this for some special searches, not for most searches, so I'm looking for some extra command to use in such special cases.

I find it a good idea though. at some point I suggested to be able to sort by clicking on column headers, but this seems better.

excellent idea !

@mouser, if one day you add this special command, i think i would be great to be able to sort by accessed / modified date also, not just created
