in reply to Suggestion: Super Search Enhancement

You can use google for that. If you want for example to search in "Seekers of Perl Wisdom" you can try this: "has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks" se +arch_term
or if you use the firefox needlesearch plugin or similar: you can use this url: +sked+for+the+wisdom+of+the+Perl+Monks%22+needlesearch&btn&meta=
It's _a lot_ faster too. And you can view the results in Goolge's cache too - taking a litte load off perlmonks. :)

    I will admit my google fu is weak so I would appreciate a step by step walk through of how to do what I actually asked for in this thread. I ask, because your suggestion does not seem to meet my expectations.

    For instance, let's say I want a list of all threads that contain Data::Dump::Streamer. With Super Search, I can get a list of all nodes containing that search term but that is not what I want. I just want the root node listed regardless of how many times the search term appears in the thread or where. With, I only find 4 threads which is wrong.

    Please show me what I am doing wrong.

    Cheers - L~R
