This powerful PM search program can search up to 4 different drives
simultaneously using parallel access and multiple threads. It has extensive
filters, plus a selectable interface for both the casual and power user.
For OS/2 Warp 4 and eCS
Support for Large files (> 2GB)
Multi core/processor support.
Multi Lingual Support (Currently : English, Dutch, French, German, Italian
Chinese and Swedish)
This new version finds files faster than ever before thanks to simultaneous
multiple drive searching and one pass multiple file filters including
searching Zip archives. String searches are not only ultra fast due to the
use of the Boyer-Moore-Horspool algorithm, but there is minimal load on both
the WPS and CPU even when multiple logical operations are specified. Once a
file has been found, it can be selected, sorted, manipulated and inspected
in a wide range of ways, even while more files are being found.
With this latest version it is now possible to use up to 5 groups of Logical
operators (AND, OR, NOT) when searching for strings both in files and
extended attributes. Specific files and or types of files can be ignored as
well as optionally ignoring hidden directories and specific paths.
Multi-lingual support has been improved with updated text and help files.
There is now automatic completion of variable names and field highlighting.
