speaking from experience with the text file, which i use because most of the time im offline, it is quite hard to search, because of the inconsistencies in Naming/transliterating the Arabic letters. i have partially remedied this in the text file i use by renaming the radicals using a simple search and replace, to an easier transliteration, which i hope does not breach any kind copyright, as its only for my own personal use. Also that some entries are written as for example  t-a/w-r. Which is very hard to search for, it would be better to be written as t-a-r / t-w-r for the sake of search ability. In the text file i use i have used the following to transliterate, mainly because I easily get confused with letters like Dhal, Thal, Za, Zay. and for the sake of searchability

a ا
b ب
t ت
th ث
j ج
H ح
kh خ
d د
dh ذ
r ر
z ز
s س
sh ش
S ص
D ض
T ط
TH ظ
A ع
g غ
f ف
q ق
k ك
l ل
m م
n ن
h ه
y ي
w و
' ء
What could i say that is better than what God has already informed us of?
Follow God
Seek His guidance, the only guidance
Glory and Praise be to God, rabbil Aalameen

Also, a changelog / version number in the files and on the website would be good so that we can keep updated.

I agree with you on the standardisation of the letters. Different compilers led to this issue. This is somewhat remedied by the apps which you can use offline.

There is a % complete on the homepage.

@wakas i am aware you have a percentage of completeness on the website, however, for the sake of those (like me) who use it offline in pdf or text format i think a version would be helpfull so we can keep updated

Salaam Wakas,
I just wanted to say thank you for this amazing project. I use the PRL site extensively while reading the Quran and no doubt it clarifies a lot of things and gives me a better insight into the verses.  I can purchase/rent the book 'A Concordance of the Qur'an' and help you guys out if you need another hand.
I also emailed the admin on PRL website but have not gotten a response yet.

Responses seem to be very slow in this world as you can see from my previous post from October. He cats is still there

peace,

smmirza1,
There are only a few things that need done:
1) Error-checking - anyone can report those here.
2) Possibly improving the app for android, and maybe creating one for iOS.

Timotheus,
It has now been updated, thanks.

Android app uploaded to popular site:
https://www.apkfiles.com/apk-520723/project-root-list

It's an older version though.
