Dear swish-e developers,
Could you make _all_ the admin headers that are stored in the swish
index file (typically set in swish.conf) available for retrieval by the
Perl module interface SwishHeaderParameter?
I have a perl CGI search script that currently calls the swish-e binary:
I would like to modify this to make it use the Perl module interface
instead, to make it more portable.
My CGI search script is generic, called as:
So it uses the admin headers stored in the index to display information
to the user. In particular I currently grab the Name: header from the
swish-e output so that the results display tells the user what index is
being searched. But "Name" or "IndexName" is _not_ available from a call
to SwishHeaderParameter in the Perl module, although other admin headers
"IndexPointer" and "Description" are. Surely an oversight??
BTW, could you use a consistent set of names for the headers accessed by
SwishHeaderParameter? Either the header names as returned by Swish-e
(eg: Description, Pointer) or the names used in the swish.conf file (eg:
IndexDescription, IndexPointer), but please not a mixture.
The latest version I've checked is 2.1-dev-24-2001-10-26.
Thanks for your work.
