How to search for "Roberto Carlos" in text-only files ?

I have just indexed a few plain text files using Splunk Web gui. Now I am trying to retrieve some results using the Java SDK. I am not sure of the search queries. What would be my search query if I want to search all the files for "Roberto Carlos" and if I need to get the top 10 results?

Guidance much appreciated as I am new to splunk.

not knowing what your indexes or terms are called,
index=text_files " Roberto Carlos " | top filename limit=10

Yes...I was just looking at the XML the search returned. Therefore it is now much easier to understand. Thanks.

you can see extracted fields from a general search on the left side, it will show you the fields which you can then use to act on in a search, eg "filename", etc.
