Text search in files without extension.

#1 Post by huh » 17.06.2019, 07:45

Hi,
I am new here and it took me a long time before I decided to write here.
This thing worked in Freecommander 2009, but it probably doesn't work in any version of Freecommander XE. It is a search for text in files without an extension.
I have a lot of text files without extensions in which I search for text. Unfortunately, this doesn't work in Freecommander XE so I still have to use Freecommander 2009. Is it possible to do something about it?

Have you tried to define "File name" as * only?

Yes, but it searches in all files, so it's very lengthy. I would like to search only in files without extension (It works in Freecommander 2009).

You can try file name as regular expression: ^([^.]+)$

Uh, I don't think I understand.
E.g. I have an unspecified number of files without extension in different folders.
In these files, I want to search for "DWORD value" text.
How do write it in Freecommander XE?
In Freecomander 2009, just type File name: *.
Containging text: DWORD value

You should activate in the search dialog "Options-Advanced mode" (in menu).
As file name use: ^([^.]+)$
Check box "Regular expression" (below file name filed) should be checked.

Wow, it works thanks. Previously, it was easier, but this is also a solution.
Thank you once again.
