Help for searching

Truncation

You have the ability to search for truncated words. There are three special characters for achieving this:

  • *: any number of characters
  • ?: 0 or 1 character
  • !: exactly one character

You can use these truncation characters in any part of a word, in the beginning, the end or inside.

Operators

  • a AND b: records that match every word
  • a OR b: records that match at least one word
  • a NOT b: records that match a, but not b

For more delicate search we can use the porximity operators:

  • a nW b: records that contain a and b in this order and there is at most n words between them.
  • a nN b: records that contain a and b in any order and there is at most n words between them.
