Search mode

Two search modes are at your disposition:

Search words are entered as is. Capitalisation does not matter. The engine works best in natural language mode. If you know what you are doing you may try boolean search mode.

Natural language mode

This mode will find words in the lists which are a complete match with one or more of your search words. You can't use jokers.

All words with less than 2 letters or appearing in more than 50% of the documents will be ignored. This mode will further ignore stopwords. Stopwords are the most frequently used words with no statistical significance to the search.

Boolean search

This mode accepts a limited set of logical operators. Words appearing in more than 50% of the documents will not be ignored in boolean search mode. The following rules apply:

  • Don't try to use 'AND' or 'OR' as logical operators. It will not work.

  • "Abu Sayyaf"
    The search looks for the quoted combination of words.
