Modified the FFind command to display a set number of lines before and after the "found line" such as the search command does in OPENVMS.

I second that request.

And I suggest and request the ability to specify multiple search strings together (like in VMS) with the ability to specify whether to match all of them together ("AND") or match at least one of them ("OR"). (VMS also allows more complicated matching criteria with NAND, NOR, XOR, and EQV. Those would be nice, but the basic AND and OR would be the most useful.)

FFIND already supports regular expressions. Would that not be sufficient?
Though I don't know how various key matches can be combined in a regex.
