DEVONtechnologies has released EasyFind 3.0, an updated version of its free file-searching utility. Version 3.0 brings the ability to use advanced search operators from DEVONagent. “Users can not only use the boolean ‘and,’ ‘or’ and ‘not’ operators to combine two search words, but also the high-end operators ‘near,’ ‘before,’ ‘after’ and ‘xor’ as well as parenthesis,” the developer explains. “‘Near’ finds all files containing two search words within a context of ten or a given number of words, ‘before’ and ‘after’ require the search words to appear in a given order, and ‘xor’ connects the search words with the boolean ‘exclusive or.'”
