If you do:
swish-e -f yourindex -T index_metanames
you can see this:
swishfilenum : id= 4 type=42 META_INTERNAL META_PROP:NUMBER
in a search, the property 'swishfilenum' is available like any other
swish-e -f myindex -w foo -x '<swishfilenum>\n'
# SWISH format: 2.4.1
# Search words: foo
# Removed stopwords:
# Number of hits: 13
# Search time: 0.046 seconds
# Run time: 0.141 seconds
With SWISH::API I think you use the $result->Propery( "swishfilenum" )
That's only one way to access the filenum (returning it as a property)
and it only works after you've searched. If you wanted to know the
filenum *before* searching, use this:
swish-e -f myindex -T index_files
and then parse that out to a db or file or whatever.
Hope that helps.
