Hi all
Whilst searching on the coppernick agent a message came up as the following.
"you do not have to use Boolean operators(and or) since coppernick manages them automatically
do you want to continue"
Anyone know what it means,

click here for details of boolean.

With boolean operatives you can search for instances of or more words using the AND command; for one of a number of words using the OR command; and for one word where it is not connected to another using the AND NOT command.

Copernic seems to use it automatically according to the message you posted.

that you would want to use Boolean (named after a mathematician called Boole) operators - those described by Lú-tzé - so it puts them in your search string anyway.
