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*


Please see Expression Types for more information about DOS Expressions.
