Please explain the SEARCH logical operators.

Well not really the operators themselves but implementation.

Does it follow standard boolean logic? Can I use parenthesis without the parenthesis being considered a search term?

Example:

I may want to search for:
rot and fin or tail
I am trying to search for:
rot and (fin or tail)
Standard boolean logic would read it as:
(rot and fin) or tail

What would the algorithms used here determine it to be? I am even allowed to compound multiple logical operators in the search query?

Thank you for your time in helping me to understand this.

Change "I am even allowed" to read "am I even allowed".

and additionally what if I had put:

fin or tail and rot?

The search page says

Quote:
You can use AND to define words which must be in the results, OR to define words which may be in the result and NOT to define words which should not be in the result. Use * as a wildcard for partial matches
So I would guess that you could use normal logic in the searches. You might need to use uppercase search peramiters. Personally I just toss a few key words in there and let it pull up all posts it finds where those words are present.

I do agree also that the search feature can be a PITA at times aswell.
