Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How do I maintain different versions of the engine compiled from source?

I was using 4.10 compiled from source, now I wanna move to 4.12. How do I maintain the different versions of the engine source and the compiled binaries?

Hi nihavjain,

The simplest way to have multiple Engine versions available is to have them installed side-by-side on your hard drive (assuming you have the space for it). I currently have a dozen different source code versions of the Engine available on my hard drive. Having more than two or three is probably a bit excessive for most users, though.

You just need to clone the repo, or unzip the source code, to a new folder, and you are all set.

If you don't have the space on your hard drive to have multiple versions installed simultaneously, it gets a little more difficult. You would need a repo with multiple branches for each version, and then you would need to change branches and rebuild the Engine whenever you wanted to work in a different version.
