Comment: wait for enough characters

If (Length(findit)>=/:minimum_search)
	Set Variable: "text" = Eval("/:text"&n)
Here we wait for the user input to be at least 'minimum_search' characters long. (The reasons for this were stated above.) We have to check to see if we need to convert the links list entry to lowercase just like we checked above to see if we needed to convert the user's input to lower case.
If (not(/:case_sensitive))
	Comment: ----------------------------------------------
   	Comment: convert our search list to l.c.
   	Comment: ----------------------------------------------
	Set Variable: "input" = text
	Call ("convert_to_lowercase")
	Set Variable: "text" = output
End If
Now we start checking the text itself. But there's no point in checking the text if the text in our link is shorter than what the user has typed in. In that case there's no possible way it could be a match, so we skip it right away...
If (Length(findit)<=Length(text))

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
