[LINK] Link archive and index
Mon, 5 Jun 2000 12:28:18 +1000
The index to the link archives has been broken for some time and a
new index is now operating. It does not operate in the same way as
the previous software.
The index to the link list is provided by the P@NOPTIC search engine
(formerly S@anity). Detailed help is available for the syntax used by
this search engine.
Some examples of how this works are -
* richard alston
will find postings with either word or both.
* "richard alston"
will find postings containing the string "Richard Alston"
* ecommerce richard +alston
all results will have "alston" and may contain either or both
of the other two words.
* [minister richard] +alston
this will find alston with minister or with richard.
* Add +1999 to a search
This will limit results to postings which were made in 1999
or mention 1999.
* Add [jan feb mar] +1997
will limit results to postings made in the first three months
of 1997 and anything posted in that year by Jan Whitaker!.
