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

- 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 in the filelist.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
