search" based on 1.3.2. From now on, I will begin to work with your
Now, I have several aditional doubts about phrase search.
1- How can be result of a phrase search ranked?
2- Searching 'Joe and Mary' It is not posible because and
is a reserved word. I think using "<and>", "<or>", "<not>"
will make things easier but this is major change for all
the cgi programs working up to day.
3- File index get bigger. Although the numeric compress function
used works fine, specially with small files, more memory is
needed when reading word positions into memory. Any ideas?
I think it will not be difficult to add a "near" operator.
I mean, searching for a word wich is as least n positions far
from the other. Could it be interesting?
Have a nice day
