When searching the article, bug, and links pages, you can create complex search queries using a few simple logical operators.

Searching for One or More Words

The default logical operator is OR - list each word you want to find separated by spaces. For example, to find all bug reports about tabs or browsers, use:

tab browser

You can also require both words using the AND keyword. For example, to find all bug reports about tabs against FLTK 2.0.x, use:

tab and 2.0

Searching for a Complete Phrase

Enclose phrases containing spaces in quotes. For example, to find all articles about weekly snapshots, use:

"weekly snapshot"

Excluding Words and Phrases

The NOT operator can be used to exclude a word or phrase. For example, to find all articles that are not about weekly snapshots, use:

not "weekly snapshot"

Similarly, to find all 2.0 bug reports that are not feature requests, use:

2.0 and not feature

Grouping Multiple Queries

You can group multiple queries using parenthesis. For example, to find all 2.0 bug reports concerning Windows (win32) or MacOS X, use:

2.0 and (Windows win32 MacOS OSX quickdraw quartz)

Searching Specific Fields

You can search specific fields by prefixing your search words with the corresponding field name. For example, to find all bug reports submitted by user "jane", use:

creator:jane

The following field names are supported:

  • creator - The creator of the article, bug report, feature request, or link
  • developer - The developer assigned to the bug report or feature request
  • fixversion - The fix version of the bug report or feature request
  • number - The article, bug report, feature request, or link number
  • subsystem - The subsystem of the bug report or feature request
  • title - The title of the article, bug report, feature request, or link
  • version - The version of bug report, feature request, or link
