This gets a +1 from me because I need to find that one rule where the bun evolves into a monogram
I also need to find the rule with the xp104_hexeh and xp14_eh so +1
Also the xp170 OMOS from my avatar

Are you saying that could happen just from viewing/searching pages, as opposed to uploading things to the server via apgsearch?

Macbi wrote:... put a "p" at the front of the rule to indicate that the rule is only being "partially" specified. After that:
If a number isn't present then none of those transitions are allowed.
If a number is present without any letters after it then all of its transitions are allowed.
If a number is present with some letters after it, followed by a minus sign, followed by some more letters, then the letters in the first group must be in the rule, the letters in the second group can't be in the rule, and any letters not mentioned can be in the rule or not.
Also if you just write "p" then it allows all of the rules.
So for example the command "-r pB34a/S2-c3a-c" would search for rules in which any B3 transitions were allowed to be present or not, any B4 were allowed to be present or not except B4a has to be, any S2 transitions would be allowed or not except S2c can't be used, and all S3 transitions can be used or not except S3a must be present and S3c can't be. No other transitions would be allowed.
