Wildpath may be used for an unanchored search, and wildcard for a single wild card. Thus:
"field-1 within wildpath" would match "field-1 within field-2 within field-3" but "field-1 within wildcard" would not. "field-1 within wildcard within field-3" would.
May be attached to a term in a request query (submitted by the client in a search request) in which case the supplied value indicates the weight that the client requests be attached to the term.
May be attached to a term in a response query (returned by the server in a search response) in which case the supplied value indicates the weight that the server attached to the term, or the weight that the server recommends for use in a re-submitted query. When supplied by the server the value may be the same as, or different from, the value in the submitted query. May be supplied by the server even if it was not supplied in the request query.
Presence of this attribute attached to a term in a response query (returned from the server) indicates that the server treated one or more words in the term as stopwords. The only valid value of this attribute in a response query is 1.
The rules governing the usage of this attribute are as follows:
The character '?' (question mark) is used to mask a variable number of characters. It may be followed by a positive integer, i.e. one or more consecutive decimal digits (where the first is positive) in which the positive integer represented by the string of digits (beginning with the digit immediately following the '?', up to and not including the first non-digit character), indicates a range of characters to mask, from zero up to and including the specified integer.
When '?' is not immediately followed by a positive decimal digit, it indicates an arbitrary number of characters to mask (from zero to a system defined limit).
The character '#' (pound or number sign) is used to mask a single character. Multiple consecutive occurrences of '#' may be used to indicate a precise number of characters to mask.
