Q: How to search dates within current week

[ I am posting this according to //gmane.org/post.php instructions.
I hope this works. ]

I am a beginner in using Orgmode. 
I would like to search for CLOSED items within the current week.

The closest posting was in 2007 entitled "search for dates as tag or property"
   http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/4506/match=date+search

I tried 2 approaches but have some problems.

1) Keywords - today, tomorrow, yesterday
   Is there a keyword for "thisweek"? in the vein of "today", "tomorrow".
   where "thisweek" means the current Mon-Sun window.

2) Match string : +CLOSED>="<-1w>"+CLOSED<="<0w>"
   Currently -1w is a moving window of the last 7 days, so the
   search result will change every day.

It is also possible there are simpler solutions I have not thought of.
For example, the Timeline would serve my purpose except that currently,
it only shows scheduled items, not closed items.

Thanks,

Thanks. I didn't realise that Org's Agenda mode/Timeline view has an "l" key for log mode. That shows all the items, closed and scheduled - exactly what I was looking for.

The Info page is somewhat sparse on this, but seeing how it works, it makes sense now.

(and following up on my own post...)

What I would probably do if this is something you need often is make a
custom agenda view which sets org-agenda-log-mode-items to closed, and
then view the agenda for a week starting from some specific date with
the log items on.  This should be much faster than the timeline view (L)
since it limits the date range you are looking at.
