Is there a binary (logical operator like ‘and’ , ‘or’, ‘not’, etc.) Search Option in libreOffice like the one available in google?
Is there a third-party software that can be installed within LibreOffice that can help to do the same?
Any input will be appreciated.
My reply regarding Google’s binary (logical) search:
“Help openoffice logical search” would search for all the stated words; this is the logical “and” search
“libreoffice-colour” would search all links without the word “colour”
““I am good”” searches for the phrase
Thank you, Mr. Lupp (you are way too senior to me! Please accept my gentle bow) for stating the correct method of Google (I just used ‘the choice of search we have, as a result of Google’s innovation’ as an example) – Google building indexes using site’s robots.txt files and Google’s unique spiders. You are absolutely correct, Sir.
In my kind of search we also have to follow a search method as follows:
In your immediately above text, for example, if I search “index later queries” as three words that I wish to find, the my search should first find “Index” in the first iteration, “later” in the second iteration and “queries” in the third iteration.
How to do this?
I enter on the
Findtextbox a phrase. The entire phrase is now an array. The criterion of the phrase is that a string between two single-spaces is taken as one search word.
Two or more consecutive spaces would be reduced to one.
I use the
max() c function to find the largest unit required for a link-list, with each word as a new array, that we’d build. Once I have the link-list my search iterations begin.
I run my first iteration matching the first word (an array) present in the open text document.
Then for the second, the third, …, limited by the no. of spaces.
Use the LibreOffice colour palette to colour uniquely each of the words.
So we are not searching for a phrase but individual word in each iteration. Then we would be able to narrow down to a line(s) that has(have) those criteria, i.e., fulfilling them.
This would be my search applet.
Actually, this could be extended to the entire Linux system for searching some specific words in any text document!
In that case you would need user-viewable list file in the file browser. Then we could open each of the listed files individually and see that we want to see.
For example, please feel free to see this page:Georges-Etienne Legendre’s Mozilla add-on SearchWP
It is such a phrase search as I have stated above.
Next, we go for the words which we don’t want in our text document, in the same manner.
