A string without quotes, brackets, or operators (+, OR, -) will be treated as a "Match Any Word" search if multiple words are specified. To search for an exact string, you can wrap the string in quotes.
Note: If you'd like to search for text that contains one of the query operators, you'll need to wrap the string in quotes. For example, if you'd like to find part of a function in your source code files, enter the following (including the quotes) in the Query box:
You can use +, OR and - operators to create more advanced search queries. Operators are not case-sensitive, but capitalizing them can improve the readability of your search query.
The + operator will only match if the text contains both of the query terms. Here are some examples:
Match anything that has both cats and dogs:
Match anything that has all 4 animals (cats, dogs, horses, cows):
The OR operator is represented as a space between string matches. It will match anything that has at least one of your query terms:
Match anything that has either cats or dogs:
Match anything that has any of the 4 animals:
Using the - operator will match anything that doesn't have the query term in it. Here are some examples:
Match anything without the word dogs:
Match anything that doesn't contain dogs or cats:
Using Multiple Operators
You can use multiple operators together, to form more complex queries. Here are some examples:
Match anything that doesn't contain cats, but does contain dogs, or contains fish:
When more than one operator is used in a query, - is processed first, then +, then OR. To change the precedence of operators, use brackets to separate different statements in your query, much like how you would in an arithmetic expression. Brackets may also improve the readability of your queries, and do not affect performance. Here are some examples:
In this example, dogs and birds will be evaluated first because + has a higher precedence than OR:
To change the meaning of the example above, use brackets:
The example below has the same meaning as the first example, but is much easier to understand:
You can use the - operator to invert the meaning of a bracketed query. The query below will search for all text that doesn't contain dogs, or doesn't contain cats:
The query below will search for either cats or dogs, but not both:
You can search for exact phrase matches, even ones that contain operators, by using quotes. Here is an example:
This example will search for the exact phrase "dogs +cars are great", the + operator is ignored because it is in quotes:
To search for quotes within text, escape the character with a backslash (as shown below) to tell the query that you are searching for quotes, and not searching for a phrase.
The example below will search for "dogs" (with the quotes) in the search text:
Match Count Operator
To specify the number of times a phrase should be matched, use the match count operator. The amount can be any positive whole number, including zero.
The example below will match the phrase dogs if it is found exactly 3 times:
To match text exactly, you can use the equality modifier on a search term.
The example below will match the phrase "dogs", but will not match things like "hotdogs":
You can still use other operators with the equality modifier, and you can also wrap terms in quotes to include spaces and other special characters
The example below will match any text that is not exactly equal to "cats and dogs":
