browseWith so much impressive amount of information about programming and coding available, one might wonder how to get from “A” to “B” on the blog. So, this page will offer some general pointers in order to help those in need of assistance for finding the preferred content.

As with any other blog, the Avid Programmer’s Blog features an archive tool, that automatically stores all the posts and publications that are older than an user-defined threshold. It is precisely this archive that users need to make the most of, to make it easier to find what they are looking for.

Just like with the news page, users can also make use of a powerful search function that accepts whatever programming or coding terms they wish to use as a search criteria. Keywords such as “C++”, “C+”, “Pascal”, “Delphi”, “RAD”, “Embarcadaro”, etc., are just some of the most commonly used in searches across the blog.

Users are advised to compose their search queries as logical as possible and in order to come to the aid of those who are working with scripts, operators and iterators, the archive features a script input field, where a classic PostgreSQL interface will enable users to practice their programming skills on a lower level. Supporting classic operators such as “SELECT”, “FROM” or even Boolean operators – “OR”, “AND”, etc., the interface allows users to put their imagination to work and construct the ideal search query.

By providing this custom search query, the founding members of the Avid Programmer’s Blog wish to encourage novice programmers and even those who haven’t had the chance to start their journey into programming, and use the search interface in order to construct their first text strings that constitute the queries.

Advanced programmers and those who come to the Avid Programmer’s Blog in order to find more complex information to use with their difficult approaches, can find valuable information on the dedicated page.
