textsearch-icon_64.pngTextSearch (Buscador de texto)

Deskbar:No entry, normally launched via Tracker Add-on

TextSearch busca por una cadena en los ficheros de texto. Se suele invocar típicamente desde el menú contextual agregados de Tracker en la selección de ficheros o directorios que quiere buscar.


Se introduce la cadena a buscar en la caja de texto de la parte superior y se pulsa RETURN o se hace clic en Buscar para comenzar. Si Mostrar líneas está marcado, las coincidencias son expandidas automáticamente para mostrar las líneas del fichero que contiene la cadena de búsqueda.

Only a few words on some of the otherwise self-explaining menu items:

Menú Archivo

Nueva ventanaALT N Opens a new window where you can enter another string and search through the same files/folders.
Set target...ALT FLets you choose a new set of files and folders to search through.

Action menu

Trim selectionALT T Removes all entries from the list that are not currently selected.
Open selectionALT OOpens the currently selected files with their preferred application (same as a double-click). If it's a text editor supporting it (like Pe), you can jump to the exact line the search string was found.
Open files in TrackerALT KOpens the location of the currently selected files in Tracker.
Copy text to clipboardALT BCopies the current selection to the clipboard.

Settings menu

Skip folders starting with a dot This is useful when working in a "unixy" environment, where often administrative files are hidden inside ".folders/". Source versioning systems like SVN and CVS are examples of applications using this and are also widely used in Haiku.
Escape search text TextSearch uses the command line tool grep. For it, special characters like '"*\$?! and spaces have to be escaped with a \. Deactivating this setting means you have to do this yourself, but in exchange grants you the power of regular expressions.
Text files only TextSearch is currently only useful for finding strings in plain text files. Deactivating this setting will have it look through any kind of file anyway.

History menu

Contains recently used search strings.

Encoding menu

Lets you choose different character encodings if needed.
