Problem with searchterms named like aliases entries
« on: April 04, 2008, 06:11:59 PM »
Hi,

using the standard aliases I get the following quite weird behaviour:
type: wiki wiki

I get a list of all entries stored in the wiki alias with wiki passed as argument and all the entries again with empty arguments.

The following reveals the reason:
type: wiki fute

I get, again, a list of all entries with "fute" passed as argument, but also (at the first place) the Futef search with no argument.

So it seems that FARR tries to narrow down the search within the available entries.
The options Stop on exact/regex alias match can prevent this but then I'll get no other search results.
I think an option called Stop search for aliases on exact/regex alias match would describe what I expect.

What do you think about that?
