There are two main reasons for using text retrieval, as I see it. (1) for searching a large body of text significantly more quickly than with grep (2) for kinds of search not otherwise possible, such as searches that span words, or that include stemming, synonyms or other morphological and linguistic analysis, or that include document structure or other "fielded" searches. > The query engine builds an in-memory representation of the content and > structure of the indexed documents. This sounds like an interesting proof of concept... but if I am searching, say, five gigabytes of text, what will happen? Indexing speed is also an issue. So I assume the main purpose of this tool is to experiment with XPath/XQL, is that fair??
