|Search files by descriptions|
When search button is labeled "Description Search", it means in search by description mode
Sometime, we may want to search some files of certain usage or function without knowing the filename of them. Even with a ftp search engine, it would be a hard work to search such files. The FtpLocate has built a file description database to solve this problem . This database enables FtpLocate to help the user to search the files they want without knowing the filename.
The result is grouped by descriptions, each description is followed by related keywords of filename. The user could click any keyword and the keyword will be passed to the FtpLocate filename search engine to get a more detail result.
Besides the AND(;) and OR(,) operations, the FtpLocate supports most meta characters in regular expression
