RE: [SWISH-E:346] Parsing a swish-e index

It sounds like you just want to decode the file.  Am I misunderstanding?

swishe -D -f index.swish > somefile.txt

That will decode the words, scores, etc into a text file.  You would need
another program to do something useful with it.  But, I think that this is
what you are trying to do.

Decoding would produce an output such as:

abridged:( 45 37 1 1 )

Subject: [SWISH-E:346] Parsing a swish-e index


I'm using swish-e 1.1 on Solaris 2.6 - works great.
I'd like to be able to parse an index file, to create a simple list of
indexed words and the number of times they are referenced.
Additionally, for each word I'd like to list the filenames that the words
came from.

Unfortunately I'm not a C programmer,
Can someone point me to a little C program that will read and
parse a swish-e index in this fashion?

Many thanks,

Brian Rankin
