Indexing and referencing nwc files

Hello,

I would like to make easily searches through a folder containing a lot of nwc files (1.75).

I would like to make this search by keywords i have put in the info part of the nwc file: unfortunately windows/explorer does not "see" the words i have put in the file.
I do not want to do the search with the filename but by words in the file.

In brief, is there a way to select files by a content? or how do you do to select specific files without a part of the name?

Have a nice day.

NoteWorthy Composer Info Console would be the program you are seeking. It will only work with 1.75 files.

Yes, right that: grep for DOS.

There is one in every Borland language package for DOS.
You can download one here: http://edn.embarcadero.com/museum/antiquesoftware

In alternative I have:

Yes!

dir /b *.nwc | nwcinfo | grep mycriteria
(mycriteria must be in the title)

Thank you!

Perhaps have you a graphical  interface to mask that ;) ?

Have a nice day

Sorry, I haven't.
You have to take fun with the regular expressions... ;-)

This may be a rare case where something was gained in translation :)
