I'd love if SublimeText could allow me to search within files/folders. Currently I resort to PSPad to get that done.
you have other dedicated tools that can do that:
grep on linux/macwingrep on windows
why to invent the wheel in sublime?
p.s. i guess you can even do it with a self made python plug-in
I'd like to see searching within sublime, especially in conjunction with projects.
I have some plans in this area, but I haven't sat down and worked out all the details yet.
Closest thing we have is sublimetextwiki.com/pages/SearchInFiles.html
But I agree, just use something else, in my case I use total commander, but you can also use suggestions vim said or one of my favorites powerGREP from the guys that made regexbuddy
I rather have sublime do 1 thing good than try to do every feature every other editor has in earth and fail at those... KISS concept
PowerGREP looks powerful but fairly complicated. I did a quick file search and the performance was awesome.
How does the SearchInFiles work if it isn't broken (actually I installed it just now but I can't find the function anywhere).
i couldn't get it to work :s
nick, can you make a screen cast of you using it, nothing too complex, just do 1 simple search on a simple project, maybe i just don't know what to expect.
thanks a lot, vim.
Yup they are indeed very useful
I personally use a lot /i and /m the most, but specially /m! is a freaking life saver
thanks! got it. i didn't realize i need to press the ctrl-alt-shift-f from inside the find panel.
