The full-text-search package

[ Tags: bsd3, data, library, search, text ] [ Propose Tags ]

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 case-normalisation or stemming. This is quite easy using libraries such as tokenize and snowball.

For an example, see the code for the hackage-server where it is used for the package search feature.
