- If no platforms are checked, the search engine will look for files for any platform.
- If no fields are checked, the search engine will look for the search terms in all fields.
- By default, only results including all search terms will be displayed. To specify that a term must not appear in the results, prefix the search term with a minus sign (-). For example, erable -beta will find all programs about "erable" that don't mention "beta".
- Put double quotes around phrases. For example, "periodic table" "arnold moy" will find only Arnold Moy's periodic table of elements.
- The search engine is not case-sensitive. For example, RPN will find both "RPN" and "rpn".
- The search engine will find substrings. For example, math will find both "math" and "mathematics".
- Because the default behavior is for all terms to be required, you can put OR before a term to show all results containing that term, in addition to all results showing the remaining criteria. For example, fixit OR objfix returns both the FixIt and the OBJFIX programs.
- Using NOT excludes the following word (a synonym for prefixing the word with a minus sign as described above), and using AND is ignored because it is redundant. Note that all Boolean operators are case-sensitive.
