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!!!


November 1, 2017 — XL Search just turned 20 years old! In less happy news, Fornax FTP is unavailable (password protected), MacFalkner's site seems gone (AOL member pages gone?), and Ken Siders passed away recently (though fortunately, his site is still up... for now).

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 17092 Atari 8-bit files
in 6 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.
