JVP-Voyager is a desktop search engine created by Mr. J.V. Presogna.
No indexing is required. All searches are "done on the fly" whenever they are required. Indexing slows down your computer. I turned off my indexing long ago, and I use a "Focused Desktop Search" without ever indexing.
JVP-Voyager has several ways to search your desktop so that it is more efficient and useful. The desktop is not the internet. You don't need 1,000 pages ranked. What you need are the exact pages you are looking for in a general area on your desktop.
When a search engine plots an index, it is making a word list. A computer can search a word list with lightning speed. It is like an index at the back of your book, a word list with pages noted where they appear. If, however, you want indexing of your hard drive, as opposed to web sites on the internet, indexing must be done daily since you change files and location all the time. If a new file is downloaded, it cannot be included in the search until a new indexing has taken place. So, you're always indexing. This happens in the background, and it uses up resources, slowing down your computer.
To search "on the fly" a computer must read all of the documents as it encounters them, and this takes longer. If, however, you limit your searches to specific areas of your hard drive, you can do this very quickly 4 folders deep.
For example, why would you search in documents, when you are looking for pictures? Most searches are just a few seconds long, and the longest are about 20 seconds. A search 5 folders deep would indeed take in too many additional folders and would be slow, so the searching is cut at 4 folders deep as a limit. You would be surprised at how many files you can search in a tree of folders 4 folders deep.
Features: With JVP-Voyager you can search a single folder or you can focus on a tree of folders "4 folders deep."
1. Select Search by Filename: For both folder search and recursive search.
2. Select Search by Content: For both folder search and recursive search.
3. Folder Search Engine: (For Filename and Content) This is the Engine which allows you to select a single folder, whereby all relevant files will be listed as hyperlinks, and all additional folders within this folder will be listed also. This searches for the "pattern" of words or letters that you type into the Search Box. Whatever order the words or letters appear will be searched for in exactly the same pattern. The string "htm" will find both "htm" and "html" because the "pattern" is there. "Of the people" is not 3 words, but rather a "pattern" to be searched for.
4. Recursive Search Engine: (For Filename and Content) This is the Engine which will search for all relevant files 4 levels deep. No folders will be listed, since the search is 4 folders deep. This is the same as the description above.
5. Keyword Search Engine: (For Content Only) This is the Engine which will search for a page which has specific keywords in it. The Engine is for "content only," not filename. Up to 3 keywords may be used. If they all appear in a page at the same time, it will be found. This is not a "content string" search, meaning that no "pattern" of words or letters will be searched. The individual and separate words you type into the Search Box are searched for, regardless of what order they are in. "John Mary" is the same as "Mary John." For example, if you typed in 3 keywords, all 3 words must appear in the page for the page to be shown, but those 3 words may appear in any order or in any place on the page.
6. "Filename and Year" Search [string yyyy]: This is a special Search Engine which requires 2 entries. Type in a filename or a portion of a filename, or a file extension. Then, after a blank space, type in the year the file was created. The search will find all files that match the year created with your pattern of letters.
EXAMPLE: rtf 2005
That will find all rtf files (WordPad) which were created in 2005. You cannot search by keyword here. You can search by year only with filename.
7. "Keyword and Year" Search [string yyyy]: This is a special Search Engine which requires 2 entries. Type in a keyword. Just one keyword is allowed. Follow it with a space, and then type in the year created as above. The search will find all files that match the year created with your pattern of letters.
EXAMPLE: Mary 2005
That will find all files containing "Mary" which were created in 2005. You cannot search by filename here. You can search by year only with keyword.
8. Web Search Online: You have automatic search access to "Bing" and "Google," which means you simply type in your search terms and search, without going to their home pages.
If you prefer any other online search engine, you can always bookmark their home page in the JVP-Voyager Bookmarks.
