What's New in Version 10?
The Workplace 10 programs have a number of new features to help you work more
efficiently. Easily switch between windows with one key. Improved progress
counter. Better navigation of the author list. One button to repeat the last
search of author/work or list of works. We added a header to the search results
which gives you the exact search string, interval between words as well as the
author/works being searched. This is especially helpful when you save searches
to help you remember exactly what the search results represents. We listened to
your requests and made the program easier to use.
Improved author lists. Older versions of the TLG Workplace allowed you to
make a list of authors. Version 10 lets you make a list of authors and/or a list
of individual works of an author. This helps you make your searches more
Link to Perseus translations. The TLG and PHI5 Workplace programs now have
the ability to link to English translations in the Perseus online library.
Search sub-section of a work. This new feature allows you to specify a start
and end reference division for searches when you are searching a single work of
Libronix support. Logos has added a number of resources that are of interest
to users of the TLG and PHI Workplace programs. Version 10 adds links to those
resources. To see their Greek language tools see
Regular expression searches (grep). The Workplace programs now have the
ability to do full regular expression searches. Regular expression searches are
extremely powerful but they can be difficult to learn. If you would like to

TLG Workplace allows you to view and search the TLG "E" CD-ROM. Several
windows can be opened at the same time. These windows can be temporarily shrunk to icons.
Searches can be done inside a single collection, or through a group of collections. For
these searches, the results can be easily printed or copied into a word processor's
document. Sections of texts can be copied and pasted from TLG Workplace into any other
Windows application. Searches are typed in Greek, and the searches ignore all accents,
breathers and iota subscripts. Diacritical marks can be selectively added to the search,
if necessary. AND, OR, NOT and proximity searching are all available.
If this is not enough, as a free bonus, TLG Workplace gives you Greek and Latin fonts
that can be used with any Windows word processor to type and print fully accented Greek
TLG Workplace requires the TLG "E" CD-ROM and Win 95/98/ME/NT/2000.
The PHI Workplace is a program for Microsoft Windows which utilizes the PHI CD-ROMs #5
(Latin) & #6 (Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri, Classical and Christian
PHI Workplace shares most of the same features as the TLG Workplace with the exception
of the TLG features which rely on the canon or the word index. Searches can be made
through all Papyri, Classical or Christian Inscriptions. Searches through the Papyri,
Classical or Christian Inscriptions can be limited to one century. Thus, for example, only
documents from the 1st Century AD documents can be searched.
PHI 5 Workplace does not support the biblical texts and other miscellaneous texts that
are on some of the PHI 5 CDs. The exception is the Coptic NT and the Nag Hammadi Coptic
texts. If you want access to these Coptic texts, please note that when ordering. The
Coptic Workplace program is part of the PHI Workplace but since it is so infrequently
desired, it is only shipped by special order.

found, or you can do a wild card search. Either one will produce a list of the works which
contain the word fragment.
Few tools are more important to serious study than concordances. The Workplace programs
can make "key word in context" and "word list" concordances. Full
authors, works of an author, or a section of a work can be concorded. The result of a
concordance is a file in Rich Text Format which can be read and edited by any major word
