Suggestion: remove this text finding app - the exit dialog and crudely worded buttons look so amateurish and are irritating once you've seen them once (or maybe it could be recompiled to remove the offending bits?).

I use Turma often, but yeah, the exit dialog is annoying after awhile.
It could be edited out of the source...

I've been meaning to gripe a similar gripe. I can't even figure to how to use Turma. ReXgrep is much more usable - it did exactly what I wanted the first time I tried it. Still never got Turma to work at all. It looks like reXgrep has more features than Turma as well. Why is Turma included?

Turma was there before reXgrep came along, and I just kept using Turma, by habit I suppose.

Removing the annoying reudeness would help, but I'd have to agree that the app seems less intuitive than reXgrep & I'd go with the "less is more" approach...

Turma is good.
It has the 'replace' function that reXgrep doesn't have, and it's only 48k.
Remove the exit dialog and all is fine.
Please don't remove it Smile

Embarassed ...must admit I didn't give much thought to a replacement. It seems pretty popular with you guys so maybe it just needs hacking - I'd do it myself but I don't have a working Vector install anymore.

The "It's only 48K" argument is a little hollow. ReXgrep is half the size, at 23K. It also should have more than the exit dialog changed, but that's a matter of taste.

It probably should stay. If Barry finds it useful, then that is reason enough.

No excuse! Wink
Puppy 1.0.5alpha2 and usr_devx.sfs is all you need to compile!

Actually I don't even have a working Puppy just now -

I can't (rather won't!) carry a Live CD around so I need to fix that first.
