Very little documentation on this one, because I didn't finish work
really. But it works (much better now) and so it's V1.2 !

Why another searcher?

Well, you may know the situation: you're looking for a file, insert
the latest Aminet CD and let the Find-utility do the work. After a
while, depending on the CD-drive's speed, it's back to show you on
which CDs the file can be found, no matter if you own that CDs or not.

My program does nearly the same, but

    - you won't have to insert any CD once the program is installed
      completely.

    - it won't show you any files which are on CDs you don't have.

    - the index-files have another format:

Aminet format:

AFData_DS9.lha     biz/cloan    2K   3+PPaint Data for D-Space9 AnimFont

AIndex format:

biz/cloan  AFData_DS9.lha       2K PPaint Data for D-Space9 AnimFont

    - you can choose your favourite textviewer.

    - you can email your ideas to me and I'll try to include all features


Requirements:

Amiga with OS2.04 and 68020 or above
Installation program requires RequestFile and RequestChoice (WB3.0+)
Harddisk
CD-ROM-drive
Aminet CDs (tested with 18, 20, 21, 22, 24 and Set 1-4)
C:Copy
C:Sort
C:Search    (maybe these will be replaced by internal routines, but
             at the moment they're a little bit faster)


Installation:

Installation script soon to be released!
Copy the whole drawer to any directory and assign AIndex: to it.
Copy the font to FONTS:
That's it.

When you start AIndex for the first time, go into the Config-menu to
set up everything. Now click "New Index" and insert the name for the
new index, don't use spaces. Example:
Type "Aminet20" (without double quotes, of course). The program will
now ask you to insert Aminet20. Insert the CD and AIndex will create
a new index which will be saved to "AIndex:Lists/Aminet20" and the
line "Aminet20" will be added to "AIndex:AIndex.lst". Now you can use
the "Search" gadget to see if everything works.

There will be a CLI-interface soon if you want to use AIndex
from within directory-tools like DOpus, Filer, DirWork,...

The most important CLI-command is already included, try this:

AIndex search <pattern>

Next version (V2.x) will have case-sensitivity :)

History

V1.0    (09.05.98)  First public release
V1.1    (11.05.98)  Now the index is copied to Workpath which makes SEARCH
                    much faster when Workpath is in RAM.
                    Some changes to the output file (removed linefeeds and
                    drew box around every index name).
                    The status window shows more information now.
V1.11   (17.05.98)  You cannot search for pattern LHA/.LHA anymore.
                    When pressing abort in an inputbox AIndex went on
                    with no filename; this caused some trouble - fixed now.
V1.2    (25.05.98)  Added localization
                    Added German catalog
                    Added installation script


Known bugs

All known bugs removed... ...until the next ones appear ;)
