Adjusting the Search Criteria

Adjusting the Search Criteria

The Script can search for anchors according to a large number of search criteria, for example:
  • According to the delimiter locations, which the Script learns from the example source
  • According to a positional offset, in other words, the number of characters from a reference point
  • By searching for particular text
  • By searching for a pattern or regular expression
  • By searching for a specified data type
  • By searching for an attribute value
You can combine these search criteria in almost any way. For example, you might specify that a
Content
anchor begins two tabs after a
Marker
anchor, and that it is 10 characters long. If you do this, you are using a delimiter criterion to define the beginning of the
Content
anchor, and an offset criterion to define the end.
The components that perform these searches are called searcher components. For more information, see Searcher Component Reference.
