In an effort to obtain more relevant results when searching for applications in AppBrowse, the following is offered as a suggested list of tags to standardize the search function. Its purpose is to serve as a guideline to ensure relevant results are returned when searching for an application even when using only a few tags.
CATEGORIES FUNCTIONS audio player mixer editor network record ripper convertor hamradio data database logging graph catalog ocr convertor desktop desktop environment, like LXDE, Xfce4 development compiler cross assembly headers interpeted debug discutility backup crypto partition sync recovery raid scsi test parameter fileshare bootloader tcinstall driver audio video tablet network firmware codec joystick filesystem network editor text hex pdf picture pixel programmers tabbed html office spreadsheet schematic pcb paint filemanager small twopanel dragdrop ftp fileutility compress sort search crypto packer antivirus game text graphic network card board shooter emulator library math audio video network disc crypto network monitor ftp discovery client crypto vpn wireless telnet torrent replay tunnel proxy record firewall relay printer driver sharing management scanner video player editor network record hamradio viewer map picture astronomy pdf text virtual mouse keyboard desktop cpu internet web browser server mail chat windowmanager tiling lowram
To search for or create a tag field, start by picking which CATEGORY best describes the primary
goal of the application. That should be the first tag in the field. Follow that with one or
more tags from the FUNCTIONS listed to the right to narrow down the search results. Optionally,
additional tags specific to the applications capabilities may be added to the tag field.
1. The first tag should be from the CATEGORIES list (not mandatory). 2. That should be followed by one or more of the tags listed to the right of the CATEGORY. 3. That could be followed by any optional tags. Optional tags are free form but basically list items specific to the application. Examples include: jpeg, png, ntfs, iso, sha5, etc.
Here are a few possible examples:

|abiword.tcz||editor||office||docbook kword latex|
|audacity-1.2.6.tcz||audio||editor mixer record||wav mp3 aiff ogg vorbis|
