Dicoogle has capability to search locally and in distributed system (P2P network). The query and retrieval mechanism follow different users’ needs. Skilled users can fine tune search sentences to improve the retrieved results. Using the “Free text” mode, the user inserts the query text, and the search is made in all the indexed fields. Like in web search engines, it is also possible to use Boolean operators to refine the query. Additionally, there are several other functionalities available, such as nearby terms and flexible range search.
