Keyword Search

Postby 24lan » Wed Sep 14, 2016 4:14 pm

I need to search a keyword in a bunch of files, but I found if the string length is larger than around 250, without delimiter, the keyword failed to be searched out.

Is there any way to search out the keyword in long string without putting separators like space or dot. Thanks in advance :)

It's seems to me that the best bet for you is to use "keyword search" (placed in top-left corner of main window) with enabled option "substring match".
Another way is to use Regular Expressions.

Hope this helps you! ;)

I don't have my dev machine with me today to look for an input length limiter in that module, but I'm sure you're close to right. I doubt there's a workaround short of modifying the source code. Instead of taking that approach, why not build the keyword as a regex? You'll have to get creative depending on the types of characters involved, but could build it to be much shorter than the actual keyword verbatim. Autopsy uses grep-style regex. Some information regarding building those can be found here.

I think it can be done using jQuery, have you tried it through jQuery or JavaScript?

You can use Regular Expression for this purpose. Hope it works !!

This could be done by using J Query and if you have done this there are several other options for this. There are lots of keyword tools that can be used for keyword search
