DOS Expression Settings
|Top Previous Next|
DOS expression settings specify whether the DOS expression matching rules will follow strict DOS matching rules.
When set to 'Strictly conforming syntax' the DOS matching rules will force a boundary check at the beginning and end of the expression if a wildcard character is found. e.g.
the expression locator* would NOT match the filename filelocatorpro.exe since it doesn't begin with the term 'locator', instead the search term would need to be set to *locator*.
When the option has been switched off it is still possible to specify the boundary check using the '<' and '>' characters, e.g.
the expression <locator*> is equivalent to Strict DOS expression locator*
