Search terms with logical "and" possible?


Is it possible to use "anded" search terms in the LQ search? I nowhere found any hint to switch away from the default "or" of terms...

The default is actually boolean AND, but keep in mind that the default is also per *thread*, not per post. Do you have a specific search that isn't returning the results you're expecting?

Yes, I searched for
Code:
rsync +"5888"
which returns in the dark blue header field:
Code:
Search: Keyword(s): rsync OR +"5888"
But I need a logical and for posts, not threads. Reason: I battle with the following rsync error
Code:
Mar  5 18:46:58 desktop backintime (me): WARNING: Command 
"rsync -rtDH --copy-links -X -pEgo -R --backup --suffix=.backup.20130305 
"/Backup0/me/backintime/desktop/me/1/20130304-184118-784/backup/
./home/me/.adobe/Acrobat" /" returns 5888
Thus my question...

If you go to the advanced search and enter rsync AND 5888 in the search box and change Show Results as to Posts, you'll get the behavior you desire (although unfortunately, this thread is the only result).

D@rn, that's what I was afraid of. Would you believe it, the earliest google entries are more than ten years old, but none explain the meaning of the error code to this very day. "May have sonething to do with permissions" is the maximum of expressed opinions, grrrr .

Anyhow, thanks for explainig the boolean syntax of this site. Perhaps the addition of a little hint on the advanced search page might be a nice touch... .

On a related note, having a 'fuzzy search' and 'vague search' option would be nice.

The next code update will bring with it an updated search that will hopefully be a little more intuitive. Thanks for the feedback.

The updated search (which can be tested at AQ - http://www.androidquestions.org/forum.php) supports word stemming.

For some reason (I didn't figure out yet) BackInTime return codes have to be divided by 256. So 5888 is rsync return code 23:

23 Partial transfer due to error
