Find All Feature request

Post by pwdiener » Wed Jul 11, 2007 5:53 pm

I'm a new Zeus user and have a feature request. One of the things I really miss is the "all" option on Find. This feature populates an output window with all the lines containing the search string. The output window then allows positioning in the source window, kind of like the compiler output window.

Is there a way to accomplish this in Zeus? I'm sure I could write a macro to do the "find all" (from reading other forum entries it looks pretty easy), but any ideas or hints on how to accomplish the output window functionality?

The Zeus Edit, Find in Files menu option should be able to achieve this this.

But I personally use the Tools, DOS Command Line menu for this sort of thing. Using this menu I would type in the following arguments command line:

Code: Select all

xfgrep -f -n -i something_to_look_for "$fn"
The something_to_look_for is the text to be found and the $fn represents the currently active file.

For more information on the -f -n -i options use the same menu and just type in this argument command line:

Code: Select all

xfgrep -?
Cheers Jussi
