is there any faq/help on the forum search function to do with boolean functions? for instance to search for: pointers AND functions i get pointers, functions, which is indicative of returning all pages with pointers OR functions.

I have searched the general disscusion forum to no avail.

thank you

It should be returning only results that match all keywords. You need try something bizarre to test how it returns maches, such as "pointers functions dog"; it will return only three results. If it were searching for "Pointers OR functions OR dogs" it would have a lot more than three results. (You're probably getting the results you get because pointers and functions often occur together, and both are fairly common words on this forum.)
