Search Request Syntax
It is possible to use multiple words for search. In this case, they are connected with the logical AND.
It is also possible to use AND, OR and NOT operators, as well as brackets. If you enter several words separated by a space, the operator AND is assumed.
The wildcard * is also allowed.
The words in search query that are less than 3 characters are not searchable. If such a word is a part of a disjunction, the whole phrase is not searchable too.

|any word||all the forms of that word||man will find man and men|
