RE: Restricting Searches by Date, Age, or other criteria

Perfect, Bill, exactly what I was looking for (I knew I had seen it!)

BTW, there's a typo: 

An error will be set if the property has already been specified or if $high
> $low. 

Should be "<", not ">".


I don't even know what API.xs is, but I guess it doesn't have the function.
Where can I get a more current copy of it?

Look at SWISH-RUN man page or if using SWISH::API, look at the SWISH::API
man page.  Search for "limit".

Does your version of API.xs have that function?

For Windows?  I think Dave's daily build system is not functioning at this
time.  Dave?
