Lesson 11. Building a Searchable PDF Lib... > Searching with Boolean expressions

Searching with Boolean expressions

You can use AND, OR, and NOT operators to build a logical expression (called a Boolean expression) that searches for words in a specific relation to each other. For example, earlier in this lesson you used the AND operator to build an expression that searched for occurrences of both "hiking" and "volcanoes" in the same document.

Using the OR operator

Use OR to find documents containing any of two or more search terms. Maybe you aren't sure what you want to do one day on your vacation—you could go diving or to Kailua.
