Re: new version of swish-e-1.3.2-PHRASE (m)

Dear David,

I have tried SWISHE_2.exe on two test indexes under NT4, running from the 
command line.

In the first test, the program crashed whilst indexing the first HTML (the 
PHRASEm build managed to build an index but I was unable to search that 
index - PHRASEm did not crash). In the second test the index built ok but 
the search hung.

This is very interesting, because the reason I am trying to use the new 
Swish is that swish_132.exe is currently crashing under NT. The crash I am 
getting is an illegal write through esi just into a function. Without 
debugging information I could not say what that function is. I can't quite 
read the machine code because I am not used to reading pipelined code, but 
it appears to be the 2nd or 3rd variable updated - probably a loop counter 
judging by the dec followed by je.

Could you send me an .exe with debugging symbols to see if I can trace this 
crash? I realise that the debug .exe will have a different layout and that 
if esi is getting garbage then it the debug version might run ok. I'd still 
like to try it.

Thanks for the help.

Chris Humphries

I am not sure anyone has tested on NT.  I only tested on Windows 98SE.
This could be a potential problem.

PHRASE m is probably broken ;-)  Try SWISH-E 2.0 beta 2.  I have
executables at:

Did it indicate that it found any words?

Many new options.  Old options should not have changed.  (I think one or
two options were repaired after being broken in the 1.2 or 1.3 update.)
