It's not just a matter of inherent portability.  Ports for BeOS, OS X, 
and QNX were done about four years ago.  I never got around to OS/2, 
like I'd planned.  Of course, without any real user base, some of these 
ports succumb to code rot.

Not to be discouraging, but had you considered helping with the 
wxWindows frontend development effort instead of developing your own 
from scratch?

Phrase, multi-word, and regexp.

IIRC, there's an argument for ignoring case in the search function.

Use regexp searching "(A|B)" or do two searches.
