Re: [Orgmode] Search all `org-agenda-files'

Hi Leo and others,

Internal commands for this in Org are:

1. multi-occur, a standard emacs command.  To apply it to the
  agenda files, call it through the agenda dispatcher, for me this
  is `C-c a /'.

  That does not include any archive files though.  To do so,
  get the new version from the git repo and do

   (setq org-agenda-text-search-extra-files '(agenda-archives))

2. You can also use search view, which is a new agenda view and allows you to search for multiple words and/or regexps which all need to match in an entry, not necessarily in a single line. It searches for whole words, not
  partial words.  Hmm, maybe it should for partial words as well?

  C-c a S +word1 +word2 -excludethisword RET

  This also searched the extra files defined above.

Dear All,

Have you ever wanted to retrieve some information from your org files
regarding some projects?

I wonder whether a command similar to `occur' but applies to all files
listed in `org-agenda-files' and their corresponding ARCHIVED files
might be desirable for org users.

Thank you for considering this proposal.
