Search

Attribyte Tech supports a rich query language for searching titles and content. clauses are combined with boolean operators to build complex queries. A clause contains a term that is either a single word or a phrase contained in quotes with an optional field name that identifies the search field. The title is the default search field.

title:java Matches entries with a title that contains the word "java"
content:"programming language" Matches entries with any content (including the title) that contains the exact phrase, "programming language".

Terms may be modified to expand their range with wildcards. A ? matches a single character and * matches multiple characters. Wildcard symbols may be applied only to single-word terms and may not appear as the first character.

content:te?t Matches entries with content that contains "test" "text", "tent" ...
content:*soft Not Allowed.

"Fuzzy" and proximity searches are also supported. Fuzzy searches apply to single-word terms and are based on Damerau-Levenshtein Distance. Edit distances of 1 and 2 are supported. Proximity searches apply to phrases and match words within a specific distance.
