Gavin is right, the BaseMode file needs changing.

The reason for this is that some time ago I changed the names of some of
the support apps for StrongED. FTPupload became FTPupSED and SearchDir
changed to DigDirSED.

This was done because I felt the names were to generic and someone might
want to release applications with those names. So, I changed the names
to something less generic and with a stronger connection to StrongED.

As this was done some time ago - the application directory suggests Dec
2011 - I had completely forgotten about it. My apologies for this.

The credits are well deserved IMO. RiscLua is very useful in situations
where Basic doesn't cut it, often due to its lack of more advanced data

Very true, expose too little and the search isn't powerful enough, too
much and the user may be overwhelmed. One, at least partial, solution is
to hide more technical options - like StrongED's advanced search - but
that has the risk, as you say, of having to go through lots of options.
