WSEARCH.VDM - Simplified Wildfile for searching

Wildfile.vdm macro is too complex for simple searching tasks and asks
too many questions. Therefore I have made a simlified version that
only asks filenames and search string. After the search is done,
just press any key to exit macro.

In addition, WSEARCH uses a smaller window instead of full size window.

WSEARCH is so much easier to use that I rarely use WILDFILE macro.
I have even found it easier to perform search-and-replace functions
using WSEARCH. Just put the replace string in scratchpad. Then,
when the searched string is highlighted, just press Shift-Ins
to replace the sting. Or if you do not want to replace it, press
Visual Exit (Numpad /) to search next item.
