I hope this hasn't been asked before  I searched the forum a couple different ways and didn't find the topic.
Is it possible to implement some kind of search functionality in the archived problems? For example, one might search for "collatz" or "nim" to find related problems.
I know this would help me:
1) Find problems that I have already solved so I can reuse hardwon knowledge.
2) Find sets of problems that I can solve as a group  I find it helps to get in the flow of a topic.
Thanks for considering it!

Re: Suggestion: Searching Problems
Suppose I would like to find all PE problems with "collatz' in their wording I would enter in Google's search field:
Project Euler Collatz.
No need to ask for extended functionality from PE itself.
Project Euler Collatz.

Also when you're logged in, on the archived problems page is a link to see the details of all the problems on one page. Then you can use ctrlF in your browser to search the text.

Re: Suggestion: Searching Problems
A more advanced way to restrict google results is placing site:projecteuler.net behind the search term.
E.g:
collatz site:projecteuler.net
nim site:projecteuler.net
In that way the search results are limited to projecteuler.net
E.g:
collatz site:projecteuler.net
nim site:projecteuler.net
In that way the search results are limited to projecteuler.net

Jaap and hk,
Thanks for responding. Since I always log in it never occurred to me that Google would be able to crawl all the problems anyway.
I guess I should say "doh!".
