Usenet search now using regex?

Postby frank479 » Mon Jan 18, 2021 1:20 am

Just wondering. I used to use dash (-) to exclude string fragments in the results and that's not working anymore. Where is this documented?

That should still work. Keep in mind there's two phases.

1 - When you initially search "this -not" should work.

2 - After the results show up, the search entry switches to normal Newsbin search mode with RE's.

I'll try some searches.
