Implementing a system
The figure shows an example of a simple but, from the user’s viewpoint, very effective implementation of file search, with which the user can filter out the relevant files from all the drives in the local network. The real-time filtering is based on a suffic array index structure implemented with C++, and it takes only a few milliseconds to find matches from even a million files.
The figure shows a situation where a user is searching for an article she read about usability walkthroughs. She has just written the beginning of the keyword, ”walk”. After each keystroke the system finds the files and directories that match the search term. The user sees the article written by Bias and double clicks on it to open it.
