Search engine than supports wield cards?

This is not an AppleScript related question, I am sorry for that, but this is the best forum I know! so here it goes…

I am trying to find a search engine like google or yahoo that allows wildcards, for example:

I would like to search and find the word “AppleScript” by typing “AppSc*t”

Anybody know were I can do this?

Thank you for your time!


Hi brian_donovan,

What are you searching? You can use wild cards in many apps and you can use wild cards in the many options in unix. You can also use wild cards in AppleScript but it is in a different form.


Google does support wildcard but only on word level, not on characters.

if you search your need wrap the search string in quotes like:

“hello * friend”
