Value Scan Search
« on: November 27, 2015, 07:16:32 pm »
I was wondering about an alternative way to build table files.
Some alternative way which should be useful for searching kanji quickly. (I know already how to build tbl files with ASCII or English letters)

For example, let's say I'm searching for the string FIELD
F I E L D
6 9 5 12 4
is the relative order between the characters.

A tutorial about making table files mention that you can search for "6 9 5 12 4" directly instead of "FIELD" if the table utility does a value scan search, which is news for me.
I'm using monkeymoore which has "Value Scan Search" and supposedly supports such a feature, but I can't get it to work whatever I write in the text box - which accept only decimal numbers by the way ("6 9 5 12 4", "06 09 05 12 04")
What am I doing wrong?

And by the way, anyone has a tbl file for utf-16, Unicode and stuff? Only one I ever found was the Shift-JIS one.
