I just uploaded the source tarball for Swish-e 2.4.0-pr2 to
http://swish-e.org/Download/ A version for Windows should follow in a
day or so.
BTW -- SourceForge pserver CVS access will also take a while to catch
This fixes a few bugs with the pr1 version (changes shown below).
There was also some rewriting of the way -S prog locates programs. The
installation directory ($libexecdir, normally /usr/local/lib/swish-e) is
appended to $PATH when looking for -S prog to run.
2.4 has a lot of changes from 2.2. The API was redesigned (and thus
much of the internal code for that API) and work has gone into making
For example, I just built and installed swish-e into a local directory
$ ./configure --prefix=$HOME/today2 && make install
then in a directory available to my web server:
$ ln -s $HOME/today2/lib/swish-e/swish.cgi
and created a config file for indexing:
$ cat c
StoreDescription HTML* <body> 10000
$ $HOME/today2/bin/swish-e -c c
and was then able to search my docs on-line. swish.cgi knows where
swish-e and required perl modules were installed.
Version 2.4.0 (Release Candidate 2) September 10, 2003
* Indexing HTML title
Fixed a problem when these were used in combination:
MetaNameAlias swishtitle title
That failed to correctly reset the metaname stack and indexed text
under the wrong metaID.
* Single Wildcards
Due to the way the query parser "works" a search of
would result in a search of "foo*". Now that results in:
err: Single wildcard not allowed as word
* Fixed search parsing bug
Brad Miele reported that the word "andes" was not being found. It
was being stemmed to "and" when was then considered an operator.
* Add new directive PropertyNamesSortKeyLength
PropertyNamesSortKeyLength sets the sort key length to use when
sorting string properties. The default is 100 characters. There was
a hard-coded 100 char limit before, but that was a problem where
people were not building from source (Windows). The value of this is
questionable -- it's intended to limit how much memory is used when
sorting while indexing and searching. [moseley]
* Fixed sorting issues with multiple indexes and reverse sorting
Reworked much of the sorting code. Still to do is setting the
character sort order. [moseley]
* Fixed minor memory leak
Fixed leak of not releasing memory of index file name and
swish_handle destroy, and fixed SwishStemWord to default to the
Fixed libtest.c example program that was not cleaning up memory
after an error condition.
* Replaced Swish-e's Porter Stemmer with Snowball
Swish-e now has support for Snowball stemmers
(http://snowball.tartarus.org/). The stemmers are enabled for an
index with FuzzyIndexingMode Stemming_* where "*" can be:
de, dk, en1, en2, es, fi, fr, it, nl, no, pt, ru, se
In addition, UseStemming yes or FuzzyIndexingMode Stemming_en will
use the old stemmer.
