These checkboxes allow some control of the query specification.
- Case insensitive:
By selecting this checkbox the query will become case insensitive (lower
case and upper case letters differ). Otherwise, the query will be case
sensitive. The default is case insensitive.
- Keywords match on word boundaries:
By selecting this checkbox, keywords will match on word boundaries.
Otherwise, a keyword will match part of a word (or phrase). For example,
"network" will matching ``networking'', "sensitive" will match ``insensitive'',
and "Arizona desert" will match ``Arizona desertness''. The default is to
match keywords on word boundaries.
- Number of errors allowed:
Glimpse allows the search to contain a number of errors. An error is
either a deletion, insertion, or substitution of a single character.
The Best Match option will find the match(es) with the least number of
errors. The default is 0 (zero) errors.
Note: The previous three options do not apply to attribute names.
Attribute names are always case insensitive and allow no errors.
