Installation

Follow .

Step 2

In the binary directory (../bin/ from the prespective of the buiild/ directory) you'll find a number of command line tools.

  • Iindex

  • Isearch

  • ...

The Iindex command is used to create indexes.

Example:

Iindex -d /tmp/FOO shakespeare.xml

will create an index called "FOO" in the /tmp directory containing the contents of the XML file shakespeare.xml

The Iindex command has a lot of options.

Step 3

To search the FOO index use use the command line tool Isearch

Isearch -d /tmp/FOO to be or not to be

This will perform a "smart search" in the index defined in /tmp/FOO for the ordered words: to be or not to be

Step 4

The engine supports not just "smart search" but a number of other query languages as well as a large number of ranking functions. Please read the documentation for additional details.
