DocFetcher is a desktop search application: It allows you to search the contents of documents on your computer. – You can think of it as Google for your local document repository.
Automatic index updates: Indexes are updated automatically when files in the corresponding folders are modified, even when DocFetcher isn´t running.
Detection of HTML pairs, e.g. “foo.htm” and a folder named “foo_files”.
Search in source code files.
Regular expression based exclusion of files from indexing.
Various file operations on the document repository can be performed through DocFetcher´s interface (e.g. creating folders, inserting new files).
Preview panel with search-term highlighting and a simple built-in web browser.
Search results can be sorted and filtered by different criteria (filetype, filesize, path, etc.).
Global hotkey to bring DocFetcher to the front.
If you have a 64-bit OS, you might have to replace an installed 64-bit Java Runtime with its 32-bit counterpart in order to make DocFetcher work. 64-bit Java is currently not supported.
