This is done, but not yet checked in (in anyone else was 

thinking of doing it).  I'll check it in once the 1.0 branch is 

ready so that it doesn't contaminate that.



It can do wildcard seaches with both ? and *, and also a 

general regex search.  It also provides the option to ignore 

case or not, and alter the maximum number of returned 

results.  There's an option that controls whether you see this 

box or the simple search one.

For 1.1a1, it would be good to have a separate "advanced 

find" query available (and revert the old one).  This would 

allow you to specify the maximum number of words found, and 

also allow regex searches.

To change it to 100, all you have to do is add one zero in 

UserInterface.py.  If lots (more than one ;) of people want 

more control over this, then I'll change it to an 'advanced' 

lookup to complement the existing one, and have options like 

this.  100 takes a long time, and results in a massive html 

page.

Thanks! A limit of 100 would have been better, though.

This is done, and should have just squeaked into 1.0a5.



It works as described above.  The one side-effect is that if a 

token ends with "*", then you can't search for it alone any 

more (you'll still get the result, but may also get other words, 

unless there are lots of them (see below), then you might 

not).  If this becomes a problem, then we'll have to either 

escape '*' (ugly), or have a separate 'wildcard' search.



It didn't look very good when there were too many results - 

and it could take a long time, and on this machine at least, 

crash, if there were too many.  So there's a hard limit of 10 

results that will be displayed, along with the number of results 

that matched, but aren't displayed.  If this bothers you or 

you want to increase the limit, it's a one line change that 

should be easy to find.  If people ask for it, then this can 

become an exposed option (again, probably via a special 

wildcard search).
