Search Engine Tips

You can use 'and', 'or' and 'not' between your keywords; 'and' applies by default.

The following examples illustrate the kind of expressions that you can use to search the index(es)

  • pk and rules
  • auction and bid
  • fighting and (skill or spell)
  • dragon not (dragonlair or lair)
  • dragon* (finds dragons, dragonhide, dragonlair etc.)


  1. The search evaluates an expression from left to right.
  2. The expressions in parantheses will be evaluated first.
  3. Wildcards (asterisks) can be used only at the end of a single word.
  4. To search for words containing 8 bit characters, use the nearest 7 bit equivalent.
    For example, to find resumé, search for resume.

What's in the results...

  1. The score. This number is generated with each result and is the program's "best guess" as to how relevant it thinks the file is to your query. This rank number, which can range from 1 to 1000, depends on a number of factors, such as how many times your search word appears in the file, how many words are in the file, and if the word appears in a title or header tag (if it's an HTML file), among other factors.
  2. The type of file.
  3. The title of the file. If this is an HTML file, this is the title. This may also be the name of the file (if there is no title).
  4. The size of the file. This size is always in bytes.
