Some questions

I used everything's command line client (es.exe) to make a plugin for find and run robot: http://www.donationcoder.com/Forums/bb/ ... ic=16582.0
I need to add some stuff to the plugin like totally replacing the command line client with directly using everything through IPC interface.
Before I do that though I'm here to ask for a better alternative if it's possible.
Can I access your database directly? Do you use some standard SQL DB?
It would be really cool if you'd let me access all these files through SQL.

I have plans to add more features to the IPC.
However, what already exists in the IPC will not change.
Can I access your database directly?
I do have plans to add support for plug-ins.
This would give you direct access to the "Everything" database.

The plan is to make the HTTP/ETP/FTP servers open source plug-ins.

Plug-in support is planed for the next release of "Everything".
Do you use some standard SQL DB?
"Everything" uses its own database for storing file names.
It would be really cool if you'd let me access all these files through SQL.
It would be possible to provide a SQL interface to the database via a plug-in in a future version of "Everything".

I will post more on the Plug-in SDK when it becomes available.
