@vector-man can you send me a like to watch a sample of your request. Last time I have worked on relative search is in ~2003. I just need to see again how it work to implement in C# control

Here's an existing tool: https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/513/

It's used to figure out the encoding of text in files (e.g. ROMs)

Here's how the person I requested this for descibed it:

"1- Open game and play until the text you want to figure the encoding for shows up. Say it has the word "World". Make mental note of that.
2- Open relative search tool. I recommend monkeymoore from rhdn. Search for that word "World".
3- It gives a few proposed encodings. Check the one that autocompletes more ingame text you saw in the game, that's the correct one.
4- Save table file. It should have just the A-Z a-z set, I think.
(that applies to Japanese, of course, and characters like space and numerals)
in that case, you're supposed to look up the font graphics and write the set manually, and feed that to monkeymoore's "define character set" option."

So, it's basically a tool to help figure out an encoding by searching with a string of text. I have not personally done this since around 2003 myself, so I'm sorry I can't personally add anything else to that. They wanted it added to your editor.

I think I can use the TBL loaded in editor for make a relative search.
