Re: Manually adding to an index

sounds like you want to use --enable-incremental and add a doc to an index.

you really don't want to "fiddle" with the index since it's binary and 
murky and indecipherable without xray glasses.

however, I'm not really following. you're wanting to return a match for 
something that isn't really in the index?

maybe BuzzWords ? check the docs for that for an example.
