Hi ladies,

an advanced search feature was implemented to find a calibre after visual
and technical details in the movement archive:
bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements

Hope it will simplyfy movement idendifications in the future.

Regards, Roland Ranfft
Excellent, Dear Sir. This will make searching for unknowns much simpler.

Hi Brian,
...been working on this feature
Working is probably not the precise expression. It was more a kind of shifting
the work continuously far enough not to get in touch with it.

Anyway, maybe it is disappointing the first time, because either no hits are
found, or almost all movements blow the display. But I used a test version
already a couple of months, and found out, which features to enter to get
just few hits (and the right among them). It is a kind of learning process, and
I still can't explain how to do best.

Regards, Roland Ranfft

Knowing that it's a work "in progress" and that you're working on it only when your career and personal life permit, is it OK if we post in this thread as we figure out which features work best together to identify movements?

Hi Brian,

I used PERL for the scrips because it is probably the most powerful language.
But powerful means that many typing errors represent valid functions, and
cannot be discoverd by a debugger.

So I guess there are still lots of bugs, and I really appreciate every feedback.

Regards, Roland Ranfft
