Regular expressions in search query
downloaded FSA and am very impressed with it.
One issue for my use is that I need to search documents that
contain both of two terms, e.g., “apples and oranges”.
Is there a way to do this search without getting “apples
and/or oranges.” The or
gives me more results than I want or need and is also less specific
than I need.
advance, for your help.
Well, there is
one solution for this issue.
Run FSA search
with: +apples +oranges search query, then you will get results for
both “apples or oranges” and “apples and oranges”.
What you need
to do now is to sort results by relevancy. Do it by clicking on
The results on
the top will be most relevant results (“apples and oranges”) lower
results will be “apples or oranges”, results below will be results
that contain just apple or just orange.
This is the way
you can make FSA do what you need. Please note, it won’t make your
search slower as searching for “apples and oranges” is just the
same as doing search as FSA do, but erasing some results then. Those
results can be useful for you.
if you don’t really need to search for “apples or oranges” then
change minimal relevancy level. By default it is 20%.
Making is higher you will remove unnecessary search results
from result list.
Thank you for
Hope you will
find FSA useful and apply it to you business or home work.
