The full-text-search package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

An in-memory full text search engine library. It lets you run full-text queries on a collection of your documents.


It is independent of the document type, so you have to write the document-specific parts: extracting search terms and any stop words, case-normalisation or stemming. This is quite easy using libraries such as tokenize and snowball.

The source package includes a demo to illustrate how to use the library. The demo is a simplified version of how the library is used in the hackage-server where it provides the backend for the package search feature.
