I love this software, it helps me a lot however I have noticed discrepancies in the search results within files. It appears to prefer incomplete words, preferably three letters plus a *

First, I created a "controlled environment", a directory containing 4 Files (xlsx, docx, txt, PDF) and started to search for the word juan:



then juan* and nothing


then, jua:


now lets try, jua*:

PFIND located 2 files containing the string jua

now lets check each file individually to see if that is accurate.
The PDF:

yes it contains jua*

Lets see the xlsx:

yes, correct.

Now, lets look at the files that according to PFIND do not contain the string jua*
the TXT first,

correct there is no jua*

and finally the DOCX:
[/code][/b]
incorrect, there are jua* strings.

Hopefully this helps other users, and developers. It is a very cool piece of software.

Thank you for your investigation. I will look into it...

@tenochslb, it is possible that pdf, docx and xlsx use encryption. I use "Search text in file" a lot, but only for actual acsii files, sh files, html files, etc. that I know are plain text. I think, if you actually opened a docx file as plain text, it would look very ugly.

Bulldog finder http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=78592
searches for text in a group of files differently than pfind.

First the files are found ---. for example the extension .txt

Then click the button for search for text inside.

I also found this, it's working for me in Slacko 6.3:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/docx2txt/files/docx2txt/v1.4/

You just type ./docx2txt.sh yourfile.docx and it converts docx to txt.

No more programs needed to read docx. Now I can read these "saved in unfortunate cryptic format" files in leafpad. Very Happy

I use the perl script and pipe it into leafpad

Code:
./docx2txt.pl yourfile.docx  | leafpad

Nothing. But I thought that Zigbert should know that piping text into
leafpad is possible. For instance the list of files and their paths could be
piped into leafpad. I find that list valuable sometimes.

OK, didn't notice that you opened a different topic. Do you use that in Bulldog finder?

No because I just learned about leafpad abilities Laughing

but it is an interest and useful feature.
Doesn't work properly with arm processor though.

Foreign characters aren't translated properly during the piping.

What is a foreign character? I have no problems with Vietnamese characters.

I mean accented characters like German and French.

When I was using barry K quirky arm distro

Code:
./docx2txt.pl yourfile.docx  | leafpad


didn't pipe the accented characters so I made a temporary file instead
then opened with geany

Code:
./docx2txt.pl yourfile.docx  >  temp.txt
geany  temp.txt


I don't think I had this problem in fatdogarm.
There's no problem in Intel 386 machines.

Funny. Did you try leafpad's --codeset option?
