What are the characters which the Dash search uses to split filenames into words?

I mean, if you have a file some random.txt, the dash will show if you enter either 'some' or 'random'. But what if I had SomeRandom.txt or some_random.txt or some.random.txt?

Which characters are considered as word splitters?


For find command it depends on the switches you provide for it, if no special search switches are issued it will do a general pattern match, as in part of the file/folder matches your search it will show up.
