Hi all,

I want to be able to query by mysql db with a boolean search.

at the mo I have:-

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM db WHERE name LIKE '%$name%'", $db);
$query_data = mysql_fetch_array($result)

ideally I would like to be able to type in the search box "something +
something" to search db with queries like.  Eg. "cat + dog" to return all
listings containing the words cat and dog.

has anyone any ideas?

many thanks in advance!
