10.4: Use Boolean (NOT, OR) searches in Spotlight
Authored by: toupsz on May 12, '05 01:26:03PM

It's evidently exclusive, not inclusive, or then. Basically, you'd use it to specify alternatives, i.e., cat|kitty would mean "I want things that are either cat or kitty, but not both."

10.4: Use Boolean (NOT, OR) searches in Spotlight

If it's an "exclusive OR", then would this bring up the "fishy cat" folder?
fish|cat|(fish cat)
Is the syntax correct? I'm trying to write "fish OR cat OR (fish AND cat)"
