Option to limit number of hits per file (or mute lines completely).

When searching for a word that is common, e.g. "Home", it's not unusual
to get more than 1000 hits which is the max number of hits mxr.mozilla.org
displays currently.  When that happens it would be nice to have the option
to mute (or limit) the lines, to get a more complete listing of which
files matches the query.

It doesn't look like "identifier search" limits number of hits...

but it would be nice to be able to limit/mute lines here too...

you can mute as long as you can come up w/ a regexp that excludes (as the ^[^\0]*$ example does) note that the regexp operates on the entire line

which includes the file name and line number (the exact format for that is kinda secret, something like /full-system/path/to/file -- line x, string)

http://mxr.landfill.bugzilla.org/mxr-test/search?string=cron&find=&findi=&filter=5&hitlimit=1&tree=mxr-test
Found one matching line

http://mxr.landfill.bugzilla.org/mxr-test/search?string=cron&find=&findi=&filter=&hitlimit=1&tree=mxr-test
Found matching lines in 8 files

unfortunately there's no easy place for me to store a hint "matches elided".

It'll roll into the next mxr update and be part of the commit (hrm, more work for my changelog notes).

you can verify it when it lands on mxr.mozilla.org, or in cvs, or if you feel happy enough about it, after landfill reboots :| [not my idea].

Cool, thanks.  Would it be possible to have a line limit on ident search too?
