RE: Search 501(c)(3)

Thanks for your help. 

I can't seem to get it to accept the Buzzwords directive in the
configuration file.   I've tried two different setups and this is the
complaint I get:

Indexing Data Source: "File-System"
Bad directive on line #273: Buzzwords 501(c)(3) 

Indexing Data Source: "File-System"
Bad directive on line #273: Buzzwords File:

    Buzzwords 501(c)(3)

Will index it as a single term.  ( and ) are special chars so you need to
escape them when searching:

  swish-e -w '501\(c\)\(3\)'
  swish-e -w '"501(c)(3)"'  # inside a phrase

But even without Buzzwords the phrase option might be best.  Then you can
just search for 501 and find them.  "501 c 3" also works in that case.

Use -T indexed_words and try indexing that term with and without buzzwords.
