Macro Files

UT_sample_macros_3 contains a macro called IPV4. This will enable you to search for all IP v4 addresses in dtSearch Desktop/Network by using the search request @IPV4 rather than having to enter a long Regular Expression.

 

To be able to use this macro the IP addresses need to have the full stop (period) character indexed. This can be done in dtSearch Desktop\Network from the Options|Preferences|Letters and Words - Edit Alphabet dialog, make the character 46 a "Letter" then update the index.

 

A serious side effect of making the period (full stop) a searchable letter is that words at the end of a sentence will not be found in a normal search, so it is best to make this a separate index which is only used for searching or extracting IP addresses.
