METROPED QUERY LANGUAGE
SEARCH ENGINE

Search for:

Not all Metroped Web pages have been indexed by Google.  Use the above form to do an internal Metroped search.  Use specific words or combinations of words.  Results will display as weighted list of all matching documents, with better matches shown first. Each list item is a link to a matching document; if the document has a title it will be shown, otherwise only the document's file name is displayed.

How to make the most of Metroped's Query Language Search Engine

The text search engine allows queries to be formed from arbitrary Boolean expressions containing the keywords AND, OR, and NOT, and grouped with parentheses. For example:

information retrieval
finds documents containing 'information' or 'retrieval'

information or retrieval
same as above

information and retrieval
finds documents containing both 'information' and 'retrieval'

information not retrieval
finds documents containing 'information' but not 'retrieval'

(information not retrieval) and WAIS
finds documents containing 'WAIS', plus 'information' but not 'retrieval'

web*
finds documents containing words starting with 'web'
