Larsen Commander Integration

If you like to integrate DataSeeker as your standard file find utility in LarsenCommander you can set this in lcmd options as shown here

To start search with a single keystroke from within lcmd f.e. with F3 edit your lcmd.rc file

//   cmdViewFile                   (key=VK_F3                        ) // Files->View
   cmdFindFile                   (key=VK_F3                        ) // Commands->Find File...


I took over the sources mainly cause there were a few things in Alessandros version which I didn't like. But with the current version, I'm quite happy. There was zero feedback on the latest versions although I think the FOC integration is a major improvement. Seems all users are satisfied or no one using it anymore. Currently I don't see any need for further development.

As of May 2014 current version is 1.13. See changelog in readme file
