Description

Very fast engine for searching in one go one or several sets of words in hundreds of files created by wordprocessors, pagemakers, databases etc.
In fact, if you write a lot, there may come a time when you are in doubt whether a certain word has always been spelled correctly: here comes AskPoirot’s usefulness, since you can make a search of the mispelled word and after a while you will see which of your files contain the mispelled word.

It is also valuable for programmers, translators, journalists and editors, as it allows to locate easily in which precise files a phrase or code expression is included.
So, through AskPoirot it is possible to know how many times a given word/sentence occurs in all of your files and in each file.

To start a search-process, you have only to write one or more words/sentences in the FIND field and drag-n-drop files and folders onto AskPoirot’s main window or icon.
At the end of the Search process, double-clicking a row in the result box, the related file will be launched by the right application, for you to make appropriate editing. Or, right-clicking a row, you can preview the context of the words/sentences found: the additional screenshot shows the context of a search of three words (the found words being colored green, red and blue).

Other features:
• To speed up the search-process, it is possible to tell AskPoirot which kind of files and which folders are not to be processed.
• Text-font and -size of the Search field and of the Result list may be modified (i.e.you are not bound to the System Font): this approch is very convenient for users who have often to switch from texts in Roman characters to texts using, for example, Greek, Cyrillic etc. characters (see screenshot where Roman and Bengali characters are used).
• The Favorites Menu helps speeding up the process of accessing folders containing documents that require frequent checking.
