PostPosted: Sat 16 Nov 2013, 06:49    Post_subject:  Searchmonkey revisited.  

Ok thought I would start a thread rather than being at the end of one for a change.

Always used search monkey cos its fast but the user interface seemed a bit quirky. I fiddled with it and reduced it to 2 tabs.
I recently had a further play and its now some sort of power search thingy and I also finished off some functions and removed some redundant stuff and solved a couple of bugs such as the date parameter control was broken.

Most changes are in the user interface so it should just work as it always did but any problems let me know so I can run away.

This is also my second pet I have ever built so I do bend to convention at times

Enjoy

I am using Lupu-528.005 which comes with Searchmonkey.

I don't think I can remove the existing Searchmonkey so can I load this "new" no-tabs version right on top of the existing program?

I think you would be fine installing over the top... redundant settings will be ignored. Thats if it happens to be in the same location...you could always extract the binary only and replace that ...the rest is the same...its a simple bunny.

is it possible to get any of these tiny search utilities to search for text within files and not just titles? even if you had to add the tools (like unrtf--forgot what the .doc one was called...) for the various file types, it would still be a nice alternative for when you don't want to have recoll (which relies on building sometimes enormous databases) go through its bit.

actually, even a way to just use it to search through plain text files would be most cool. does this feature already exist?

enable contents match... contents section....top right section of the gui.
The image shows the result of a quick text search.

I find it very useful for compiling when locating functions

Not of the top of my head...I would guess something in perl or python perhaps.

Content search might still pick out items in rtf for example...suck and see.
One thing that is lacking is unicode support but I could not find anything in linux to do that and resorted to a windows program Agent Ransack.

(catdoc is the name of the .doc converter.) i can remember reading that odt is basically a wrapper for a zipped text file, so maybe it's possible with that format as well.

recoll works well enough, but using it for a quick folder search sometimes requires one to uncheck boxes and stuff. oh well.

just remembered there's a gnome utility that does it. think it might be called Gnome Search Utility Smile
