ARCHIVED: How can I search the Knowledge Base for C, R, or X?
To search the Knowledge Base for information about single-character computing terms, such as C, R, or X, try surrounding your search term with spaces within quotes, for example:" C "
This prevents matching to
C:\>, which would occur if you simply searched for
C . The Knowledge Base ignores most
punctuation and would treat a search for these examples as though they
contained C by itself.
Cin these examples.
Although most single characters are ignored in Knowledge Base searches, you can still search for C , R , or X , because these are common computing terms at Indiana University. See, In Knowledge Base searches, what words are ignored?
