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> gigabyte drive.
EL> some ideas:
EL> -- database, database, database. make a utility that creates

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>> 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
