Beagle: Searching for text string containing "-" character
 
let's say i want to find all files containing the string "kexec-tools". Beagle-search claims
that no such files exists even though at least two of them do. I'm wondering if I need to somehow escape the "-" in the "kexec-tools" in order for beagle to be able to find it.

You can try "man find" to see if the find command will help you to solve the search problem.
