Hi guys,

I'm not entirely sure how to interpret the following line from the specs:

"It must allow the user to search the data for all records, or for records where the name and/or location fields exactly match values specified by the user."

The phrase "and/or" is puzzling me. If the use enters both a name and a location, am I supposed to fetch all records that match both or either one? Or am I supposed to provide the option to let user choose which relation?

Can someone kindly advise on this?

Thanks
Kang
