Subject: Re: Search Plugin
From: Eric Linenberg (elinenbe_at_umich.edu)
Date: 2003-12-17


I just found a bug. It always puts the m3u playlist that it creates
in the results. So, for instance if I search "people", one of the
entries in the SEARCH-people.m3u playlist is SEARCH-people.m3u

EL> I really like this plugin although it takes about 2 minutes to search my 60
EL> gigabyte drive.

EL> some ideas:

EL> -- database, database, database. make a utility that creates
EL> a database of your player on the computer that you can then just drop
EL> into /.rockbox/rocks/db/ (it could scan ID3 tags and filenams)

EL> -- an option to rename the search results, or just use the default

EL> -- maybe list the songs as they are found? (more verbose deiplay)

EL> this is a keeper for me!

RW>> Hi all.

RW>> I've made a plugin for simple recursive filesearching.
RW>> If interrested you can grab it at:
RW>> http://www.mara-sign.dk/rune/search-rock.zip

RW>> The zip containes a compiled version for the Recorder + sourcecode.

RW>> The searches are case-insensitive and the results are placed in playlists
RW>> called /SEARCH-xxx.m3u (where xxx is the respective search word).

RW>> Performance could be greately improved by eg. using a DB.
RW>> But a slow algorimth is better than nothing. :-)

RW>> Feedback are welcome
