Vista Search loves Pascal (more from the fun point)

today i was searching some lost document, i try to find it over the current date.
after the open windows search i open the enhanced stuff and over the dialog a create the search for all files of today. what did i see?


yes, datum (that’s german and means in english date) := ‘28.05.2009’ LOL

but microsoft did forget the “;” where can i report the bug?

Think Delphi

  1. the “;” is a statement seperator not a statement delimiter.
    thus no need for it in a single statement

  2. Actually the := is also a bug 🙂
    I would think you want = to perform a comparison when searching instead of an assignment 😉

  3. The symbol `:’ is the separator between the property name and the property value and the `=’ means `is’. (Thus `:’ will also work and they would mean `before’ and `after’.)

  4. Oh what I meant was `:>’ and `:&lt’.

  5. It is not pascal. It is COM’s parameter passing convention that can be used if one wants to call a method in a COM object which has got a lot of parameters and one does not want to pass parameters in the sequence they are defined.
