Auto EntryList define lookup parameter by defining IEntryFilter and IOptionFilters, they are actually parsed by COFEShared.FilterParser object.

IEntryFilter is used to define what entries can be matched, or where to look for the entries,
IOptionFilter is used to specify extra options.
OR is an operator that works with IEntryFilter only, it means anything that match either previous entry filter or next entry filter is okay.

For examples, to look for cs or text file that have filename contains abc under the {temp} and it's sub-directory, sort by filename, one can create an AutoEntryList with the following filter string :
root:{temp} filename:abc filetype:cs OR filetype:txt subdir:true sort:name+
Because it search for subdir, it may take a while if it's not cached in database.
