How to do search on CARI
Type of searches you can do using CARI.
For Simple search
Enter one or more words separated by spaces. Enter a single word to find any search record that contains the exact whole word entered. For example, the search entry "transport" would find records containing the word "transport", but not "transportation".
To fin the records for both "transport" and "transportation", use an asterisk * for your entries. For example, "transport*" will find both ""transport", "transportation" and etc. Similarly, "*sport" would find "transport", but not "transportation". (Unless you enter "*sport*").
If you enter more than one word, CARI will find entries containing all of the words you entered. For example, "office supplies" will find entries containing both the word "office" AND the word "supplies", and they are not necessarily next to each other or in that order.
All searches are NOT case sensitive. Search for "Restaurants", "restaurants" or ReStauRants" are all the same, and will return the same results. Unless you select the "Case Sensitive" option.
Avoid using the search words like "Malaysia", "the", "http", "www", "com". Those words will return almost all records in CARI. You will not be able to find what you want.
For Advanced Searches
For advanced searches, you can use a boolean expression. To find record that contains either the first word, or the second word, or both, enter the word or between two search words (with a space between each word and the "or"). For example, "table or chair" would find records containing the word "table" or the word "chair", or both.
You can also use the word and for your search. It would return only the records that contained both the word "table" and the word "chair". This would be the same as a simple search for "table chair" because if there is no boolean expression between two words, the defaults is to assuming an and between each search word.
To find records which do not contain a particular word, place the word not before it. For example, "not Jaring" would find all the records which do not contain the word "Jaring". You can combine the "and", "or" and "not" commands, for example "chair and not wood" would find records containing the word chair but not the word wood.
For even more advanced use, use brackets to group the expression. For example, "chair and (wood or steel)" would find all records containing the word "chair" and either "wood" or "steel" (or both). If there are no brackets, the and command has higher precedence, so "chair and wood or steel" would find all records that contain "chair" and "wood", and also records containing "steel".
