[vox-tech] Google question - dotfiles

A friend asked if a .forward file can be used to forward mail to two
recipients, instead of just one.  I figured it probably can handle something

   $ cat .forward
   me@one.account, metoo@another.account.

But wasn't sure.  I know procmail can do this, but I was curious about
.forward.  So I did a Google search on

   .forward email

and it looks like Google ignores that (in this case crucial) dot.  Is there
a way for Google to NOT ignore that dot?  And does anyone know if .forward
can handle two recipients?

Also, I guess I suspected this before, but it never registered: Google
search terms are NOT commutative.  Doing a Google search on 

   foo bar

yields completely different results than doing a search on

   bar foo.


The mathematics of physics has become ever more abstract, rather than more
complicated.  The mind of God appears to be abstract but not complicated.
He also appears to like group theory.  --  Tony Zee's "Fearful Symmetry"
