description
This is just like vimscript #1290 but with simpler syntax.

:BoolPat {expr}

converts boolean-logic pattern {expr} into a normal regexp pattern and searches for it.  Basically, {expr} can be any regexp pattern with some special characters in it for boolean operators:

! is logical NOT, | or || is logical OR, & or && is logical AND
(...) is for grouping, whitespace separates items, '...' quotes characters

Quoting: Single quotes '...' literally include special characters and whitespace in the pattern.  Two single quotes '' result in one single quote, inside or outside of '...'.

:BoolPat abc
will search for lines containing the string "abc", using the pattern .*abc.*

:BoolPat !abc
will search for lines which don't contain the string "abc", using the pattern ^\%(\%(abc\)\@!.\)*$

:BoolPat abc|def
will search for lines which contain either the string "abc" or the string "def"

:BoolPat !(abc | def)
will search for lines which don't contain either of the strings "abc" or "def"

:BoolPat abc & def
will search for lines which contain both of the strings "abc" and "def"

:BoolPat abc' & ''def'
will search for lines which contain the string "abc & 'def"

:BoolPat abc''def
will search for lines which contain the string "abc'def"
