beagle-query: search your personal information space
NAMEbeagle-query - search your personal information space
SYNOPSISbeagle-query [options] query
DESCRIPTIONbeagle-query is used to search your personal information space via Beagle, on the command line. It is a command-line form of the beagle-search GNOME program.
- Reduce the number of search results returned per backend. The default is 100. Increasing this will slow down overall search speed.
- Print detailed information about each hit.
Show the entire cached text for each result. Only works with --verbose.
Note that for large documents this will produce extremely large output, so use this with uri queries or queries returning only a few results Not recommended for live-queries or stats-only queries.
- Enable live queries. This argument keeps beagle-query running, continuously feeding new matching hits as the system gets aware of them.
- Show only statistics on the number of search results and how long it took to get them, and not the results themselves.
- Lists the keywords allowed in query. Keyword queries can be specified as keywordname:value e.g. ext:jpg
- Print the usage message.
- Print the version information.
QUERYYou can query for a word, several words or a quoted phrase. When several words are searched, only documents which contain all the words are matched. To specify a phrase, enclose it in shell-escaped quotes (\"search term\").
Besides these beagle supports an advanced query syntax. See http://beagle-project.org/Searching_Data#Search_Syntax for more information.
