I thought i'd start a little thread for FARR tricks+tips on some of the more unusual stuff in FARR v2.
I'll start with a trick that demonstrates the "dosearch" special alias action. Although described in the help file its not obvious how you might use this special action. Here's one way.
You know that FARR2 can do direct browsing of folders, etc.
So you could type "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\..." etc.
Here's an alias that will let you type "pf\" instead of "C:\Program Files\" as a shorthand:
1000>>>pf alias search>->dosearch C:\Program Files\$$1>+>^pf\\(.*)$
just select that code and go to your alias file and choose IMPORT menu.
basically it just says that on matching regular expression "^pf\\(.*)$"
treat that as if user typed "C:\Program Files\$$1"
so the dosearch alias action is a way of letting the user type one thing, and making the program think they typed another.
