Search questions from a non-programmer
« on: July 06, 2008, 05:56:50 AM »
Hello guys! I'm currently addicted to FARR. However I know that somehow, someway it would be possible to search e-sword with FARR> so my query is this: is it possible to a search within e-sword bibles with farr?

Is it possible to search text within files using FARR? Thank you for your help guys  :)

Someone might write a farr plugin to search within a specific file or a very few number of specific files, but for general file contents searching you will need something that does detailed indexing of file contents.

Such indexing is a non-trivial load on your pc and occupies large amounts of drive space, so to do searching within all the files on your hard disk (or even a large collection of them), you really need a different kind of program, one that does very largescale indexing of file contents, like one of the Desktop Searchers.
