New feature? multiple word searches
« on: January 12, 2006, 09:57:58 AM »
Mouser,
  I was just wondering how to do this (or even if it could be done) in the current incarnation of FRR ?
  I would like to be able to enter what would become effectively 2 patterns that would match in the executable name (and/or path)

  Also I noticed that in your documentation a search for wildcard showed once result in the change information but no section on what you are using for wildcards.  I tried ? and that matched a single character but neither * or .* worked as a multicharacter wildcard

Thanks

multiple word search is coming in version - long planned;
version 2 was supposed to be out by now but some other of our programs have jumped ahead of it in the queue so it's taking a little more time to get to it

wildcard * should work, but it goes into a stricter mode i think.  so for example scr* will match all entries exactly starting with scr.
and you'd have to use *scr* to find everything with the substring str.

it probably wont work with multiple ** and its not regular expression.

  This time I used ext*fs* and got what I was after
