Extension Interfaces

Top  Previous  Next


By default FileLocator Pro searches all file types by reading the raw binary data of the file. However, for certain well known file types FileLocator Pro provides extensions to interpret the file types and provide more meaningful results. Since the extensions are simply COM objects the extension architecture is open to 3rd party developers to write their own extensions.


The extension interfaces:



Supplies composite file information for files types such as ZIP, TAR etc.


Optional interface that if implemented provides the composite interpreter with the original file name of the composite file.


(BETA interface not supported)


Optional interface that if implemented is called to Initialize and Uninitialize the component.


Converts a given file into plain text for easy searching.



To inform the core search engine about the availability of an extension a configuration file is required.
