    The "How To" of FileFind Requests
    *********************************

    Originally developed by Jeff Schrunk. Last Revision: 2003-09-04

    The FileFind system offers people the ability to search for files via echomail by writing messages addressed to the name "ALLFIX", without quotes. The files,
    file specifications, and keywords (preceded by a
    '/') are placed on the subject line. The message body may be left
    empty.

    ALLFIX will scan the configured message areas and process all FileFind requests. It will scan the BBS file areas and if any matches are found, it will write a reply in the appropriate area.

    Since the FileFind requests are sent via echomail, one request may receive multiple replies. One problem with this system is that the flow of mail may easily get out of hand. ALLFIX has a number of features to reduce the amount of mail. First, no more than 15 files will be included in a reply. Second, it
    has the ability to ignore any local FileFind requests. Third, ALLFIX will not process FileFind requests that contain less than 4 non-wildcard characters (ie.
    characters other than the '?' and '*' wildcards). Lastly, ALLFIX has the ability to ignore FileFind requests that are older than the configured number of days.

    To facilitate searching for files, ALLFIX supports two elementary boolean operators; AND and OR. These operators may be used between filespecs and keywords.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files that have both the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit OR /SOUNDBLASTER

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files with the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description, or for any files with the keyword /SOUNDBLASTER in the description.

    Sometimes a keyword may contain the special character "/". ALLFIX will normally interpret that as a special character signalling that the rest of the text entered is a keyword. In order to prevent ALLFIX from doing that, the keyword can be enclosed in double quotes. For example, when searching for the keyword OS/2, it should be specified as "OS/2" and not as /OS/2 which may be interpreted incorrectly by ALLFIX.

    The FileFind system offers people the ability to search for files via echomail by writing messages addressed to the name "ALLFIX", without quotes. The files,
    file specifications, and keywords (preceded by a
    '/') are placed on the subject line. The message body may be left
    empty.

    ALLFIX will scan the configured message areas and process all FileFind requests. It will scan the BBS file areas and if any matches are found, it will write a reply in the appropriate area.

    Since the FileFind requests are sent via echomail, one request may receive multiple replies. One problem with this system is that the flow of mail may easily get out of hand. ALLFIX has a number of features to reduce the amount of mail. First, no more than 15 files will be included in a reply. Second, it
    has the ability to ignore any local FileFind requests. Third, ALLFIX will not process FileFind requests that contain less than 4 non-wildcard characters (ie.
    characters other than the '?' and '*' wildcards). Lastly, ALLFIX has the ability to ignore FileFind requests that are older than the configured number of days.

    To facilitate searching for files, ALLFIX supports two elementary boolean operators; AND and OR. These operators may be used between filespecs and keywords.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files that have both the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit OR /SOUNDBLASTER

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files with the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description, or for any files with the keyword /SOUNDBLASTER in the description.

    Sometimes a keyword may contain the special character "/". ALLFIX will normally interpret that as a special character signalling that the rest of the text entered is a keyword. In order to prevent ALLFIX from doing that, the keyword can be enclosed in double quotes. For example, when searching for the keyword OS/2, it should be specified as "OS/2" and not as /OS/2 which may be interpreted incorrectly by ALLFIX.

    ALLFIX will scan the configured message areas and process all FileFind requests. It will scan the BBS file areas and if any matches are found, it will write a reply in the appropriate area.

    Since the FileFind requests are sent via echomail, one request may receive multiple replies. One problem with this system is that the flow of mail may easily get out of hand. ALLFIX has a number of features to reduce the amount of mail. First, no more than 15 files will be included in a reply. Second, it
    has the ability to ignore any local FileFind requests. Third, ALLFIX will not process FileFind requests that contain less than 4 non-wildcard characters (ie.
    characters other than the '?' and '*' wildcards). Lastly, ALLFIX has the ability to ignore FileFind requests that are older than the configured number of days.

    To facilitate searching for files, ALLFIX supports two elementary boolean operators; AND and OR. These operators may be used between filespecs and keywords.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files that have both the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit OR /SOUNDBLASTER

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files with the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description, or for any files with the keyword /SOUNDBLASTER in the description.

    Sometimes a keyword may contain the special character "/". ALLFIX will normally interpret that as a special character signalling that the rest of the text entered is a keyword. In order to prevent ALLFIX from doing that, the keyword can be enclosed in double quotes. For example, when searching for the keyword OS/2, it should be specified as "OS/2" and not as /OS/2 which may be interpreted incorrectly by ALLFIX.

    has the ability to ignore any local FileFind requests. Third, ALLFIX will not process FileFind requests that contain less than 4 non-wildcard characters (ie.
    characters other than the '?' and '*' wildcards). Lastly, ALLFIX has the ability to ignore FileFind requests that are older than the configured number of days.

    To facilitate searching for files, ALLFIX supports two elementary boolean operators; AND and OR. These operators may be used between filespecs and keywords.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files that have both the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit OR /SOUNDBLASTER

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files with the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description, or for any files with the keyword /SOUNDBLASTER in the description.

    Sometimes a keyword may contain the special character "/". ALLFIX will normally interpret that as a special character signalling that the rest of the text entered is a keyword. In order to prevent ALLFIX from doing that, the keyword can be enclosed in double quotes. For example, when searching for the keyword OS/2, it should be specified as "OS/2" and not as /OS/2 which may be interpreted incorrectly by ALLFIX.

    To facilitate searching for files, ALLFIX supports two elementary boolean operators; AND and OR. These operators may be used between filespecs and keywords.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files that have both the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description.

    Ex. /SOUND AND /32bit OR /SOUNDBLASTER

    In the previous example, ALLFIX will search for files with the keyword SOUND and the keyword 32bit in the description, or for any files with the keyword /SOUNDBLASTER in the description.

    Sometimes a keyword may contain the special character "/". ALLFIX will normally interpret that as a special character signalling that the rest of the text entered is a keyword. In order to prevent ALLFIX from doing that, the keyword can be enclosed in double quotes. For example, when searching for the keyword OS/2, it should be specified as "OS/2" and not as /OS/2 which may be interpreted incorrectly by ALLFIX.

    The "How To" of FileFind Requests

    The FileFind system offers people the ability to search for files via echomail by writing messages addressed to the name "ALLFIX", without quotes. The files,
    file specifications, and keywords (preceded by a '/') are placed on the subject
    line. The message body may be left empty.

    ALLFIX will scan the configured message areas and process all FileFind requests. It will scan the BBS file areas and if any matches are found, it will write a reply in the appropriate area.

    Since the FileFind requests are sent via echomail, one request may receive multiple replies. One problem with this system is that the flow of mail may easily get out of hand. ALLFIX has a number of features to reduce the amount of mail. First, no more than 15 files will be included in a reply. Second, it
    has the ability to ignore any local FileFind requests. Third, ALLFIX will not process FileFind requests that contain less than 4 non-wildcard characters (ie.
    characters other than the '?' and '*' wildcards). Lastly, ALLFIX has the ability to ignore FileFind requests that are older than the configured number of days.
