Alpha Search - In File Search Tool
« on: May 24, 2011, 07:56:17 PM »
Hello guys!

I just wanted to let everyone know about an application that Deo, my friend and co-developer of Quick Cliq, developed.

It is for quickly finding strings in text files and supports RegEx.
I use it for searching through source code and it has helped immensely.

Check it out here on the AHK forum (Binary Included): Alpha Search

Thanks for posting :)

I tried it out and initially wondered if I was going to use Notepad++ anyway, why not use its Search -> Find in Files... functionality.  Shortly after I realized that Alpha Search appears to display search results as it finds them and one can double-click on a result while the search is still in progress -- whereas with Notepad++ IIUC one must wait for the search to complete before seeing any results.
