Welcome to XL Search!

XL Search is a search engine, similar to C|Net's "Shareware.com", which lets you find files (software programs, images, documents, etc.) at an FTP site and download them to your PC.

If you've got an Atari 8-bit computer or emulator, this is the best spot to find software fast!!!


February 21, 2012 — A number of software archives seem to have disappeared, and/or stopped producing ".qif" files for me to index, so the current index is down to about 7200 files at 7 different sites.

Here are some tips:

When entering search keywords, it may be more useful to type some descriptive words rather than filenames, just in case the filename is slightly different than what you're thinking.

E-mail search!

Remember, you can also access XL Search via e-mail! Send a blank e-mail to: xlsearch@newbreedsoftware.com for details.

For more information, or to add your own FTP site, please see the help page!


Search through 7199 Atari 8-bit files
in 7 archives:

Sort by:

  • List more words in the search form to narrow the results.
  • Add a "+" before a word to require it. ie, "+.dcm"
  • Add a "-" before a word to exclude it. ie, "-game"
  • Put a "+" between words to stick them together. ie, "pac+man"
  • Or put quotes around words to stick them together. ie, ""video game""
  • Matches are case-insensitive.
  • Asterisks ("*") are ignored.
