Meta or free text date comparisons

Dear Swish users,

How can I make date range comparisons (not file dates)
eg if I have META DATE=1945-1951 or even free text with similar stuff
via swish search of '>1946 and <1950 ' for example.

I could have a search front end with  a single year in e.g. 1946 to pick
up the date from the above. I can pre-process to a list of years, but
this does not really solve the range thing.

I take it that I can't do '>' and '<' comparisons as it doesnt seem to
be documented(??)

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
