Use the form below to search for documents in this web containing specific words or combinations of words. The text search engine will display a weighted list of matching documents, with better matches shown first. Each list item is a link to a matching document; if the document has a title it will be shown, otherwise only the document's file name is displayed.

A brief explanation of the query language is available, along with examples.

Search string:


Query Language

The text search engine allows queries to be formed from arbitrary Boolean expressions containing the keywords AND, OR, and NOT, and grouped with parentheses. For example:

information retrieval
finds documents containing 'information' or 'retrieval'

information or retrieval
same as above

information and retrieval
finds documents containing both 'information' and 'retrieval'

information not retrieval
finds documents containing 'information' but not 'retrieval'

(information not retrieval) and EXCEL
finds documents containing 'EXCEL', plus 'information' but not 'retrieval'

finds documents containing words starting with 'web'



Try using Boolean expressions in your queries for more efficient results.  For instance, using the search string:

borland delphi

will return a result showing any pages with the words borland OR delphi in the page.  Instead use the expression:

borland AND delphi

This will result in all pages containing BOTH search words.
