    Internet search related question

    Does anybody know how to use substitution signs searching the web or any other way to solve my problem?

    I need to find any phrases which meet certain conditions (for example, I know the initial letters of the words and number of letters in each word).
    I tried this approach:
    T?? L???? G?? etc.
    I tried also using "+", "&", "*" in different combinations. But Google doesn't support these substitution signs and I don't know the engine that does.

    Any ideas? Anybody?

    I suppose it's a line from a poem or something equally well-known, but since it's in English, I really have no clue.

    Обломись. Не может быть в индексирующих поисковиках (а все, которые в тырнете ищут - именно индексирующие ) регулярных выражений ни в каком виде.

    Sorry for misleading you. The previous example has nothing to do with the actual phrase I try to decipher. It's a long one and probably related to religion, sectret societes, dante's inferno etc., so it's impossible to guess it basing on the first letters. Well, actually it may be even a list of last names (some Renaissance artists) for all I know.

    Since cheating doesn't work I'll try a logical approach. (But I'm really stuck. Stupid game. )

    Thanks.
    I've already asked the question on a couple of similar forums and even found a place, where I can see that phrase. I'm still thinking it over, though. Want to solve that puzzle on my own.

    То, что нигде нет, я могу допустить, а почему не может быть?

    И уж точно нельзя сказать "ни в каком виде". Звездочки-то есть.

    Ok, for those who is interested the phrase in question was "Fidei Sanctae Kadosh Imperialis Principatus Frater Templarius". ()

    В вышеприведенном примере( "t* l* g*" ) гугль ищет все равно не по всем словам, которые под маску подходят, а по ключевым словам t, l, g , а уже потом выделяет то, что под маску попало.

    Потому что для этого нужно либо оставлять индексацию только словами, и для каждого рег. выражения генерировать кучу запросов со всему словами, который под это выражение подходят, что невозможно, либо индексировать в том числе и регулярными выражениями, но тогда при индексации для каждого слова, для которого мы собираемся создать индекс, нужно будет придумать всевозможные регулярные выражения, под которые оно подходит.
    Если ограничиться чем то простым вроде одиночной звездочки внутри слова в любой позиции ( хоть это и не regexp, а glob ), или некоторого количества подряд идущих "?" , то нормально, хотя и тут для каждого слова длины n нужно будет сгенерировать n*n индексов. А если не ограничиваться одиночными словами, или простейшими выражениями ?
    Ну то есть слово "a" подойдет и под [a]* и под [a-b]* и под [a-b]+ и тд.
