rfe: logical AND & for search tool

I'm surprised that the search tool includes OR |, but not AND &.

I finally figured out that I can run the tool multiple times to get the same effect, but that seems like a lot of work vs. just typing out a simple quasi-SQL line of logic.

can we have it? is it already there and just not documented? (don't think so, as it fails)

and is implicit, just type two expressions and both of them will need to match. For example key1=value1 key2=value2 search for primitives that have both key1=value1 and key2=value2

But this is not first time somebody is asking about AND, maybe this should be documented and even optional AND or & might be supported.

ah, excellent. maybe just make AND a no-op? .. i.e. just parse the word out of the string to ignore it? hmmm, I wonder how that will effect ( ) constructions?

thanks for the quick reply,

Just be careful how this is handled when the data does actually contain 'AND'. A quoted "AND" should definately not be a no-op.
