Type in a few words or a phrase and press Enter or click the Search button to view the search results. The search is not case sensitive.
The spell checker will return a single spelling suggestion when it detects a possible spelling error. (It currently supports only US English.)
For example, if you type "developper" it will suggest "developer".
The search does not support wildcard searches or stemming. For example, "develop" does not return "developer" or "development" entries. Searching for "tool" does not return "tools" entries.
Place a minus sign "-" immediately in front of a word if you want to exclude it from a search. For example, entering "disk" will return 25,900 entries, entering "disk -drives" returns only 4,300 entries.
Synonyms are other words that have the same or similar meanings. They are displayed as "Other suggested searches" on the results page.
The Sort by Date feature sorts and presents your search results based on date. The date of each file is returned in the results. Results that do not contain dates are displayed at the end, sorted by relevance.
This search only returns pages that include all of your search terms. There is no need to include "and" between terms. For example, to search for hard disk drives for servers, enter:
To broaden or restrict the search, include fewer or more terms.
This search supports the logical "OR" operator. To retrieve pages that include either word A or word B, use an uppercase "OR" between terms. For example, to search for either plasma screens or LCD projectors, enter:
This search ignores common words and characters known as stop words. These include most pronouns and articles. This search automatically disregards such terms as "where" and "how," as well as certain single digits and single letters. These terms rarely help to narrow a search and can significantly slow searching. If you want to use stop words in your search, use the "+" sign or enclose your phrase containing stop words in quotation marks. Make sure that you include a space before the "+" sign.
You can also include the "+" sign in phrase searches.
You can search for phrases by adding quotation marks. Words enclosed in double quotes ("like this") appear together in all returned documents. Phrase searches using quotation marks are useful when searching for famous sayings or specific names.
Certain characters serve as phrase connectors. Phrase connectors work like quotes because they join your search words in the same way double quotes join your search words.
This search recognizes hyphens, slashes, periods, equal signs, and apostrophes as phrase connectors. For example, these search entries will retrieve the same results:
This search supports several advanced operators, which are query words with special functions. See list below.
The search engine keeps the text of the many documents it crawls available in a backed-up format known as "cache." A cached version of a web page can be retrieved if the original page is unavailable (for example, the page's server is down). The cached page appears exactly as it looked when the crawler last crawled it and includes a message (at the top of the page) to indicate that it's a cached version of the page.
The query [cache:] shows the cached version of the web page. For instance, [cache: www.fujitsu.com] shows the cached page of Fujitsu's homepage. Note: There can be no space between cache: and the web page URL in the query.
If you include other words in the query, those words will be highlighted within the cached document. For instance, [cache :www.fujitsu.com United States] shows the cached content with the words "United" and "States" highlighted.
The query [info:] returns all information available for that particular URL. For instance, [info: www.fujitsu.com] shows information about the Fujitsu homepage. Note there can be no space between the info: and the web page URL.
If you include [site:] in your query, the results are restricted to those websites in the given domain. For instance, [help site: www.fujitsu.com] finds pages about help within www.fujitsu.com. [help site:com] finds pages about help within .com URLs.
Note: There can be no space between the "site:" and the domain.
The query [link:] enables you to restrict your search to all pages that link to the query page. To do this, use the [link:us.fujitsu.com] syntax in the search box. No other query terms can be specified when using this special query term.
If you start a query with [allintitle:], the results are restricted to documents with all of the query words in the document's HTML title. For example, [allintitle:fujitsu press] only returns documents that have both "fujitsu" and "press" in the HTML title.
If you include [intitle:] in your query, the search is restricted to results with documents containing that word in the HTML title. For example, [intitle:fujitsu press] returns documents that mention the word "fujitsu" in their HTML title, and mention the word "press" anywhere in the document either in the title or anywhere else in the document.
Note: There can be no space between the "intitle:" and the following word.
If you start a query with [allinurl:], the search is restricted to results with all of the query words in the URL. For example, [allinurl: fujitsu press] returns only documents that have both "fujitsu" and "press" in the URL.
If you include [inurl:] in your query, the results are restricted to documents containing that word in the URL. For example, [inurl:fujitsu press] returns documents that mention the word "fujitsu" in their URL and mention the word "press" anywhere in the document either in the URL or anywhere else in the document.
Note: There can be no space between the "inurl:" and the following word.
