Re: indexing and windows - my problem

yes, in fact I don't want to use the indexing feature
of swish, because I should do that on my own, this is
my thesis. 

I just want some features, if exists, that will be
hepful in creating document vectors to compare to the
query vectors. For example, stemming seems like a very
complex topic to me, and I think swish has a feature
like this. that's why I want help from you.
