There are several things which are heavily used through this indexing
- What those nifty things do mean
- File view and tree view
- Using New files
- Using Search
- Frequently asked questions
There are two main modes of examining directory structure and archive
contents. First is called "tree view" and usually entered by selecting
"Tree" in the navigation bar at the bottom of the page. Alternative way
is to click on a [+] sign which appears near directory names
throughout the archive (it will bring the tree into view from that
Search engine is somewhat more complicated that I wanted it to be.
Most options are self-explanatory but nevertheless I'll describe them.
- Show (expand) directory tree starting from that point (the sign
appears near directory name).
Ask them, and I'll put answers here!
- Search entire archive/search from subdirectory
- use this option to search only limited part of the archive.
Keep attention to it; turning it on will hid anything not under
specified path from search.
- Search type
- you can choose between plain, wildcard and regular expression
search. If you know what regular expression is, you don't need any
explanation of it. "Plain" search will look for specified string
to appear somewhere in the file/directory name or description.
E.g., searching for "nftp" will find "nftp103.zip", "nftp/readme"
and so on. "Wildcard" search is similar to Unix/DOS/OS/2-style of wildcard
expansion in filenames: "*" stands for arbitrary amount of any symbols
(this definition includes empty string), "?" is one and exactly one
"*" will find all files (under DOS, you have to specifying "*.*");
don't try it - resulting listing is several megabytes in length and
your browser might crash (Linux Netscape needs about 20MB of RAM to
"*." will find all files ending with dot;
"*nftp*" will find all files (NOT directories) which have the
characters "nftp" in their names, including "nftp103.zip" and
"*.zip" will find all ZIP files.
