  • search problem

    Hi,
    I'm intersted to search in the forum threads the word "ERR 44" but I'm not able to perform the search, in spite of I've tried several formats for the search string.
    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks!

    Anything 'word' under length 3 I don't believe is included in the search index.

    You can try things that short in a "phrase" search by wrapping it in quotes - but with this particular one, nothing will be found.

      Google will search the PowerBasic website. Try using:
      Code:
      site:www.powerbasic.com err 44

        Adam and Paul, many thanks for your replies.
        I've already tried the Paul suggestion with poor results.
        Maybe I will post my problem (debugging related) in the forum.

        bye

          I too am sometimes frustrated by the search engine's inability to accept search terms of 3 characters of less. This pretty much precludes ever finding referenses to:

          COM, DEF, DIM, IF, ABS, AND, ASC, ASM, ATN, BGR, BIN, BIT,
          CB, CHR, COS, CVD, CVE, CVI, CVL, CVQ, CVS, DIM, DIR, DO,
          EOF, EQV, ERL, ERR, EXE, EXP, FIX, FOR, GET, HEX, HI, IF,
          END, IIF, IMP, INT, LEN, LET, LO, LOC, LOF, LOG, MAT, MAX,
          ME, MID, MIN, MKD, MKE, MKI, MKL, MKQ, MKS, MOD, NOT,
          NUL, OCT, ON, OR, PUT, REM, RGB, RND, SGN, SIN, SQR, STR,
          SUB, TAB, TAN, TCP, TIX, TRY, UDP, VAL, XOR, etc.

          Now I realize that all of these can be found in the PB help file, but I come here often to see how these keywords are being used in other peoples code postings and unfortunately I am unable to do so.

          The current search term size restriction makes it impossible to search for a large portion of the PowerBASIC language. And this forum is all about the PowerBASIC language isn't it?

          I'd love to see the 3 character minimum word size reduced to 2 or eliminated.
