Yes, I know they are from the same author. Maybe once a year I
try to get him to do just a Find with options to also get so many
words on each side of the search criteria. I can probably do
that with Ransack, but I think it would be a pain. Ransack is
sure enough a fast finder with RegExp and Win/dos. I've been
working on my Library for it tonight to add an option to use RegExp or Win/DOS.
Now all I need to do is reformat one of the copies of my King
James Bible 1611 to a format that works better with Ransack than
I have now. The current works fine if there is not many
occurrences of the search criteria such as "In the beginning",
but if there are many like "God" look out. ;) It searches
speedily through all the books in separate files, but only lists
the first book that the occurrence is in causing for an
additional search. This is the way I'll change it to:
Genesis 1:1 ¶In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Genesis 1:3 ¶And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
