Search Engine of the Viola Mailing List

Please note that if a word is too common (e.g. VIOLA), the search engine will not return any document.

Email addresses can now be searched. Unfortunately, URLs can't be searched because colons cannot be indexed. Searchable words can include only the following characters:

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz&#;0123456789_\|/-+=?!@$%^'\"`~,.][{}()

You can also use wildcards (asterisks) to search for matches to the beginnings of words only - you can't put asterisks at the front or in the middle of words.
