Wow! The indexer does seem very fast!
I have a major, however obscure, problem with searching.
This occurs on FreeBSD/2.2.7-STABLE (Pentium III 450 MHz) and
Linux/2.2.14-15mdksecure (AMD K6-2 500 MHz) using different versions of
GCC (2.7 on BSD and 2.95.2 on Linux).
The problem has something to do with the index headers. When I search an
index it hangs until I kill it. It seems to be related to the exact
number of characters in all of the combined Index* header options except
IndexDir (i.e. those stored in the index file's header). It does not
seem to matter which characters are used. Also, if I edit the headers
after they have been stored in the test.idx file it does NOT fix the
problem. The number of characters seems to be the most important
factor. If I add or remove one character from these options it searches
fine. Double-Quotation marks " around values do not seem to affect it;
I have left them out with no change in behavior. Spaces may change
behavior; It seems that the problem is less predictable when I change
spaces to other characters in the IndexDescription option.
Here is an example config which does not search correctly:
# Copy of filters.html and test.html
#Example options which break search:
IndexName "Qyl Crijoa"
IndexDescription "O lasqing if all ajcopoloc frioxs at VaraNone Crink
IndexAdmin "mkson Jarxh, 1qasonopspajairacqm4"
Index Command line:
./swish-e -c test.cnf
Search Command Line:
./swish-e -f test.idx -w test
I think it might be nice to include a project file for Microsoft
Visual C++ with SWISH-E 2.0. I can provide a project/make file for
MSVC. I have been asked on numerous occassions how to build SWISH-E on
Windows. That should make it easier to build on Windows.
