Straight from the POD: todo.pl list important And also todo.pl list rocks

As the POD says: todo.pl list important Lists tasks specified by the named search 'important'. For more on named searches, see the CONFIG FILE section of the perldoc So what's the actual query behind your todo.pl search named "important"?

Is this another named search of yours? What's the actual query? Thomas

Doh, I overlooked that. I was expecting more out-of-the-box utility, like RT simple search or (to a lesser extent) hiveminder's web interface, where the search recognizes certain keywords and DWIM e.g; important as shorthand for --pri > normal. The configuration requirement precludes off-the-cuff searching for arbitrary criteria diminishing the script's utility. Afterall, the top of the POD says "todo.pl list query" not "todo.pl list named-search-alias-for-complex-or-frequently-used-query"; that one must reimplement locally independent of the paid service named searches one might have. Perhaps it should fail if it is given a query it does not understand, instead of pausing to eventually return a list of all tasks?

The equivalent "simple search" is: todo.pl list query foo Patches are welcome for using pro saved lists (via the API), better doc, etc.

Ohh, so query is literally part of the command! The documentation is somewhat vague on this point. It is marked up as an option (sans additional parameters necessary for a query), and there are no examples of actual queries given, so it was (easily) mis-interepted as a placeholder for the query terms i.e; that todo.pl list foo would find tasks with foo in the searchable info rather than todo.pl list query foo Perhaps add to the synopsis todol.pl list query foo List tasks that match the arbitrary string foo

The searches are token based, like the underlying syntax on the web (visible in the URL or the grey subtitle on list pages). There's a small example in the doc: todo.pl list due before today not complete List tasks that are overdue. The "query" token is the same as "Summary, description, tags contain".

A doc patch for this would be great. Thomas

That is not an equivalent example since it omits query

The searched fields would be worth documenting.

Indeed.
