Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "OpenItems" by LinkUpdater
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2008 04:33:20 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by LinkUpdater:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  == Collation Optimizations ==
  
- Right now CouchDB uses the [http://www-306.ibm.com/software/globalization/icu/index.jsp
ICU library] from IBM for collation support. CouchDB currently uses a rather slow method of
interfacing with the library, which is to copy the UTF8 string lists to binary buffers and
then provide the buffers to ICU to do the comparison. More optimized methods of interfacing
with ICU could be used, or just do the collation in native erlang using generated code to
create the collation tables.
