i believe the right way to do this is with a generic plugin that has been talked about before -- a kind of structured file searching plugin.
Basically the plugin would let you configure search keywords, along with specifying the file they should search, and how they should look for text and tags and what info to show on match.
So this could be used to search almost any kind of text,xml, or help file in a structured way that would allow you to type keywords or tags and have FARR show ranked resuls -- then select one to show full text of the entry.
It would be incredibly useful for a wide variety of things.
Yes that would be great, i would certainly use it
it is really too bad not to have some kind of similar mechanism within the core of FARR
simple, that way you can customize more, because of action modifiers...., because of switches..., because of all your great work mouser !
i don't believe a plugin would be able to do everything you could with a core function...
the way i see FARR (i may be the only one
) is that you create your own environment (when i describe what i do with FARR, i simply say it's a additional layer on top of windows...)
somehow i see plugins as independant utilities
FARR is amazingly powerful, in about 5 minutes, i implemented Veign's idea !
Let's not forget that...
