Let me know what you think of this file search engine that I made. Its technically run through google and is a special way to search for files online, but this program is easier than typing it in each time.

How to use it: enter the key word(s) by clicking in the text box, then enter your word(s) then hit enter and click off what file types you want to search for. Then click search and then you just need to click on the best looking link.

give me some feed back (positive or negative)





On a scale from one to ten one being very smart and ten being an absolute genius your none of the above

Well, it is nice idea. But initializing Directx 9 renderer in such a simple program is a bit overkill

Why is using the simplest way to draw graphics in DBPro overkill? And why is doing alot more work to make it use a different renderer (eg, Windows) not overkill?

That looks sick, so Im guessing that this just does this sort of thing

In a google search?
Brilliant!

This could've done with simple windows forms. Or web page. DirectX is overkill because its intended to use for graphical intesive tasks.

DBP shouldn't be used for this in the first place.

Because it's faster, more widely supported, portable (sometimes), easier to take advantage of a decent GUI, and will result in a smaller executable file than the 4 MB EXEs that DBP spits out.

I know its missing alot of file extensinons to search from but you can just enter the file extension in the key word search (e.g. "object.x")

Sorry to contradict your statements, but Pascal was a very popular language in the 70's, and is still used in products like Delphi today. The most popular languages probably in the last 10 years are C/C++ and Java.

http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html

As to the speed, it doesn't matter what language you use, it is the compiler. Unfortunately, aside from Delphi, which uses Pascal, there are few non-legacy compilers, and it's poorly supported. Interestingly, Nikolas Wirth developed a replacement for Pascal called Modular 2, which was object orientated in a primitive way, but Modular programming was not popular at the time and it never took off.

The language doesn't have speed, the implementation of it does
