List of search results

Post by boo »

Two questions:

1) is it possible to capture the results of a search (Find, ALT+F7) in a list that can be pasted into a document, if so how?

2) is there a way to use the current Find in a grep-like manner - I want to see the contents of the lines as they are found (assuming a search in text files)

or, is there a plugin to provide grep-like functionality? I'm not interested in reg-ex, just the basic stuff described above?

Thanks,

poo

Thanks, that worked nicely.

Now, about the second part. Is there a way to have grep-like functionality in Salamander?

Not exactly. But in list of files (the result) just pres F3 and again F3. It opens file in viewer and finds first match.

Yes, I know. But that requires opening every file in a viewer. I was hoping for a grep-like solution which gives an overview at a glance without the need of opening files. Thanks anyway. Hey, can you guys consider this as a feature request :) or maybe someone can make a plugin?
