I found out what was causing the bug I was struggling with in the tool I 
was working on.

At present the search engine is intended to allow any of three basic 
operations, and any appropriate combination:

1: Keyword, with "*" wildcard allowed ("read*" should match read, reads, 
readable, reading, etc.).
2: Boolean, allowing and, or, not, and parentheses.
3: Quotations enclosed in double quotes.

Right now everything but the wildcard works, but they don't work 
together. I'd like to have them all working, and working when you use 
them together. If you could look at 
http://haywardfamily.org/jonathan/searchlog1_0_1_b.tar.gz , I'd 
appreciate it.
