Agreed, one could index ALL stop words, but that would be extremely
[Actually, commenting out IgnoreWords wouldn't work either. It would just
cause Swish to spend an inordinate amount of time calculating the frequency
of all of the potential stop words, as defined in config.h, and then
deleting them from the index, ending up in essentially the same
place. Redfining the default stop word frequency as 100% wouldn't do it
either because it would not reliably insure that the specific words you
need would get indexxed as they very likely would occur in 100% of the
files. And if you set the default frequency to 0% you end up with an empty
index because ALL of the words would be stop words.]
It would be better to allow a few specified terms, like yes/no, etc. as
"non" stop words. Then you could search within meta or xml tags like a
Suggested variable names: "SpecialWords" "Override_Stop_Words"
