    Any advanced search app to look for words within a separation range?


    I'm looking for some App to search within a file or folder for something like the Google Around() operator.

    For example: look for a file in the Documents folder where the worlds rain and shiny appear separated by a maximum of 10 words:

    Any good app to get these kind of advanced searches?

    Hi, Copernic appears to support this- there's a free version limited to 10000 files. Been around for years, mature.

    Then there's Lookeen (not free):

    You can still get the obsolete Google Desktop Search- it will still work.

    Thanks, I eventually went for Filelocator Pro, it also has the NEAR Boolean operator like Copernic. I wonder if there's one for Mac and Windows.
