Re: [swish-e] empty indexes ...

I'm not much of a perl programmer, I'm afraid.

I'm just using swish.cgi ...

What would you suggest I do here:

        swish_index     => [qw( one two )],

when two might be empty ...?

Also: if the last time I built the index it wasn't empty, but this time 
it is, the old one will stay, right?  I remember you making the change 
that the index gets built as a .temp file and then only if it succeeds 
does the old one get clobbered -- so that's what's happening here.  It 
was done that way so that searching during indexing didn't have a race 
condition bite you (yes, it can still happen, but it's rare).
