In the user manual, search operator, p. 229-230,
1- term1 BUT term2: Contains term1 AND term2
2- Example: (Steve NEAR Jobs) AND iMac BUT NOT MacBook OPT Pro
I could not find BUT discussed via google search.
1- do I understand correctly that BUT and AND are the same ?
2- in the example, why is BUT used ?
If I take out the BUT as in (Steve NEAR Jobs) AND iMac NOT MacBook OPT Pro , as far as I understand, I would get the same results. Translated in spoken english I would say but not MacBook, but as a search operator, I would not use BUT. There must be something that I don’t understand.
