Agent Ransack Goes Shareware...
- Hi All,
I use a program called Agent Ransack just about daily and like it
a lot. Dave, the author, made a shareware version of it called
"FileLocator Pro" that looks pretty nice. I run it via command-
line in NoteTab. I thought some of you might be interested in
it. (I have nothing to gain from this except to stay on Dave's
good side FWIW.;) It is geared more towards people that know
Regular Expressions, but it has a pretty neat wizard thing to
help a beginner write RegExp and see it being done. For somebody
trying to learn them it is pretty nice. Perhaps we can get Eric
to "-Plug-in support for 3rd party developers extensions" if that
would be in addition to what we already have and would enhance
NoteTab more. (Oh, unlike NoteTab returning a whole file when
criteria is found, RA returns the line. For further discussion,
please keep it on the Off Topic list.

I know that some people will be disappointed that these features
could not be included in the free version but unfortunately I do
need to generate some revenue to support the web site, bandwidth
