The changes are attached from the 'Changes' file. This version
includes the aforementioned feature whereby you can dump the
words "around" the query words, e.g.:
$ search -w7 electrical
Above, '7' specifies the window size (at most). You can
optionally specify the number of characters that must match,
$ search -w7,4 electrical
Above, "elapse" and "elevator" were not output because the
first 4 characters of the words do not match "elec": the first
4 characters of "electrical".
Creating a web interface using this new feature is left as an
exercise for the reader. (My off-the-top-of-my-head suggestion
would be to create one <SELECT SIZE=n> ... </SELECT> per query
word and allow the user to refine their query from the words in
the index. I would be interested in seeing your solutions.)
* In "search," a "window" of words can be dumped around the query words.
* In "search," the -d option to dump the index for a word now dumps all the
query words instead of a single word. Additionally, a stop-word used to
print "stop-word"; now it prints "# ignored: " followed by the word.
* In "search," the -d option to dump the index for a word now prints the
# not found: word
if 'word' is not found in the index.
