Farr should not ignore files in browsing mode?
« on: June 09, 2008, 12:44:27 PM »
I see that Farr would  ignore certain file types-files if they have minus rules in browsing mode. That is really usefull for searching but not when browsing.

For example if I have a rule for *.py that is -8000, Farr would not show them if I try to browse (ie c:\python\lib). Is there a way to make this work differently for different situations like searching versus browsing?

I think i'm going to remove all scoring from browsing mode -- so all files will display, and display alphabetically.  that would solve your problem.  anyone object to this?

I personally do not have any objection. Browsing mode should be straight forward. One can also filter in browsing mode. Maybe we can have a (-) (+) operators in browsing mode? So one can type c:\pythong\lib -*.py +*.pyc which would remove all .py but show only .pyc in the current search? Maybe for convenience + operator would put whatever is defined with the operator on top of the search without blocking anything else ? If we can introduce + - operators then *.extension expression  could just work as it is currently.

@mouser,

great release, however i use _ a lot so that i'm sure some folders appear on top
which is not the case with FARR, they appear at the end

in regular explorer :
_folder
a folder
b folder

in farr :
a folder
b folder
_folder

is it by any chance fixable ?
