Hi folks, I'm having trouble trying to get an alias to work.
It's basically a modification of lanux128's locate32 alias, https://www.donation...81.msg66910#msg66910
using Index Your Files instead, (http://www.indexyourfiles.com/
1000>>>IYF>->iyf $$1 Local|C:\PortableApps\FileUtils\iyf-x\iyf-x.exe --databases:Local --files:$$1>n>iyf $$1 in database $$2|C:\PortableApps\FileUtils\iyf-x\iyf-x.exe --databases:$$2 --files:$$1>+>^iyf (?:\s|)([^\s]*)(?:\s|)([^\s]*)(?:\s|)([^\s]*)(?:\s|)([^\s]*)
The first works fine where it searches in the database 'Local', but the second just doesn't seem to accept a database as an argument, it always defaults back to 'Local'.
i.e. I have two databases, 'Local' and 'Network'.
'iyf posters network' should do: iyf-x.exe --databases:network --files:posters (this works from a CLI BTW).
But it just defaults to whatever database(s) used in the last search, (usually Local).
Can anyone point out what I've done wrong or what I need to do to get the second alias working.
EDIT: AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Forget about it, my brain has obviously taken leave of my body.......thought it would automatically use the second alias when there was more than 1 argument...........too much Christmas cheer methinks...........
