Then you haven't tried Swish3:

[karpet(at)not-real.pekmac:~/tmp/s]$ cat docs/china.xml
<doc>
 <title>China Confirms Gold Price Suppression</title>
 <names>foo bar baz</names>
</doc>

[karpet(at)not-real.pekmac:~/tmp/s]$ swish3 -q '*hina'
# swish3 version 3.0.12
# Format: Lucy
# Query: *hina
# Hits: 1
# Search time: 0.0484
  50 docs/china.xml "China Confirms Gold Price Suppression"
.


You can install swish3 with the Apache Lucy backend like this:

% cpan -i SWISH::Prog::Lucy
