Automatic Directory Listing Search

What is Automatic Directory Listing Search?

Automatic Directory Listing Search (ADLSearch) is a tool for searching of file lists downloaded from users. Create a new ADLSearch entering 'avi' as search string for example. When you download a directory listing from a user, all avi-files will be placed in a special folder called <<<ADLSearch>>>.

Search Options

Search String
This is the set of search strings to search for. Order doesn't matter.
Source Type
One of following values:
Matches search against filename.
Matches against current subdirectory and places the whole structure in the special folder.
Full Path
Matches against whole directory + filename.
Min/Max Filesize
Sets the upper and lower limits for file size. This is unused for Directory searches.
Size Type
Sets the units for the search sizes.
Destination Directory
Sets the output folder for a search. Multiple folders with different names can exist simultaneously. Each folder name gets wrapped in <<< and >>>.
Marks the search as active or inactive.
Download Matches
When checked, matches to this search will be put into your Download Queue.

Extra Features

  1. There is a new option in the context menu (right-click) for directory listings. It is called 'Go to directory' and can be used to jump to the original location of the file or directory.
  2. If you use time formatting variables, they will be replaced by today's date. If you use %[nick] it will be replaced by the nick of the user you download the directory listing from.
  3. If you name a destination directory 'discard', it will not be shown in the total result. Useful with the feature below to remove uninteresting results.
  4. There is a setting called Break on First ADLSearch Match. If enabled, ADLSearch will stop after the first match for a specific file/directory.The order in the ADLSearch windows is therefore important. Example: Add a search item at the top of the list with string='xxx' and destination='discard'. It will catch many pornographic files and they will not be included in any following search results.
