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!!!
Here are some tips:
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.
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.
Remember, you can also access XL Search via e-mail! Send a blank e-mail
For more information, or to add your own FTP site, please see the
firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

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