I have never built a PHP module. In fact, this is my second perl 
module. The first one was much more simple.

The C library is in a very alpha implementation. Basically, I use a 
struct (very similar to the C standard FILE struct) to handle all the 


struct SWISH *handle=SwishOpen();  /* Reads headers of index 
files */
int results=SwishSearch(handle,searchstring,options..)

struct result=SwishNext(handle)  /* Reads result  and advances 

SwishClose(handle)  /* Release memory */

There are other functions in mind like:

char *wordchars=SwishHeader(handle,"WordCharacters")
/* returns header values by name */
SwishSeek(handle, position) 
/* Like fseek(fp,position,0) */

When I have a more decent library, I will inform you.
