Subject Re: Mapping multiple entries in an array field? (like tags)
Date Sun, 22 May 2011 09:03:31 GMT
Hi Alex, thanks for the quick response. But with only a start/endkey
pair, how am I supposed to match a tag that is not at the front of an

Consider these two documents:
doc1: ["akhet", "couchdb", "python", "redis", "riak"]
doc2: ["couchdb", "redis"]

They are sorted, and they can be emitted. However, specifying
startkey=["couchdb"]&endkey=["couchdb", {}] will only match doc2 (or
did I understand it wrong?). And it doesn't look like there's an easy
way to match both docs with keys like ["couchdb", "redis"].

What do you mean by another key sequence? What will it look like?
