Searching Hints

This search facility performs a case-insensitive search using a number of keywords. You don't need to put quotes around search words.

You can use the booleans and, or, or not in searching. Without these booleans, the search will assume you're anding the words together. Evaluation takes place from left to right only, although you can use parentheses to force the order of evaluation.

You can also use wildcards (asterisks) to search for matches to the beginnings of words only - you can't put asterisks at the front or in the middle of words.

  example 1: john and doe or jane
  example 2: john and (doe or not jane)
  example 3: not (john or jane) and doe
  example 4: j* and doe
