How to Use CAPipedia The search box in the upper right hand corner is your avenue to finding information.  Use keywords to search.  If too many options come back, then you can add more search words. All the pages that match have a link to click on.

TIPS Avoid short and common words This is the most likely cause of an unexpected failed search. If your search terms include a common "stop word" (such as "the", "one", "your", "more", "right", "while", "when", "who", "which", "such", "every", "about", "onto"), then your search will fail without any results. Short numbers, and words that appear in half of all pages, will also not be found. In this case, drop those words and rerun the search.
Search is case-insensitive The searches for "fortran", "Fortran" and "FORTRAN" all return the same results.  

Search Examples:  How do I change my password?   You want to type change password in the search box.
