PowerSearch 3.4.9 | 1.58 Mb
Via a very intuitive interface, use PowerSearch to search multiple files for multiple search terms at the same time. The following features will become self-evident after using the program a few times ...
QUICKLY VIEW FILES
The results of your search will be listed in a clickable list so that you can easily open any file that has a found search term. Assign a default editor/viewer, or use the Windows' file associations to easily perform this procedure with your favorite editor/viewer.
SAVE SEARCH RESULTS
The results of your most recent search are saved to a file called FOUND.TXT. If you want to view, edit, or save it as another name, you have the opportunity to do so after the search process is complete, or you can select View Last Search Results from the File pull-down menu on the main screen.
REUSE SEARCH TERM LISTS
Since it is likely you will want to reuse your list of search terms, you can save the list into text files and easily import them into PowerSearch's search term list when needed.
USE ADDITIONAL OPTIONS WHEN NEEDED
There are also options to show the line number or found text in the found results. If you are searching for just a few terms in a few files, the process will take just seconds to complete, regardless of whether or not you used these additional features. However, use of the options to show the text and/or line number where the search term was found can significantly slow the search process (since the program then has to search the files line by line for each term). If you have thousands of search terms and/or thousands of files, the process can go from being a 20 minute routine to one that may take a few hours -- again, depending on the number of terms and/or files you are searching for, the size of each file, and, of course, the speed of your computer.
Runs on any computer with Windows 95/98, Me, 2000, XP, Vista, or NT.
