Subject Fuzzy Search
Date Thu, 24 Jun 2010 14:07:25 GMT
Hi again,

Is there any mechanism in couchdb to do fuzzy search?  In my
application I would like to be able to search for a person by name,
but want to accommodate typos, misspellings, etc. Is there anything
like this built into couch?  Is this something that couchdb-lucene
(which I know very little about) could provide?

My workaround was going to be to store a secondary structure, like the
soundex of the name, along with the document and then just search on
that.

Cory
