SEARCH2 : LIBRARYCMD

SEARCH2 is a library command.
Search the entire library, including all comments, for a
given combination of strings. See also SEARCH.
The syntax for the given list is essentially conjunctive normal
form -- it should be a list of conjuncts, each of which is a list of
disjuncts.
For example:
((MS88) (THM)) finds everything containing THM and MS88
((MS88 THM)) finds everything containing THM or MS88
((MS88 MS89) (THM EXERCISE)) finds everything containing (MS88 or MS89)
and (THM or EXERCISE).
WARNING: THIS COMMAND IS SLOW, AND CAN USE A LOT OF MEMORY.
You might want to think about using the Unix "grep" command instead.
 
The command format for SEARCH2 is:

<LIB>SEARCH2 TYPE STRINGLIST BACKUP
"LIB-ARGTYPE-OR-NIL" "STRINGLISTLIST" "YESNO"
