Subject QueryParser.jj character update
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2002 15:27:13 GMT

In looking into the QueryParser, I noticed that most charcters where 
allowed in the queryString buyt quite a few common characters where not.
Can we look to update this to allow more characters?
Obviously this is a big change since it will affect the way all tokens 
are made.

I would suggest adding "/&=#\"
Also, I think that we should add "." as a term_start_char. This handles 
names like .NET, .com ...

Any thoughts on this?

How do I format the query in order to keep the parser satisfied? I
have tried the usual \-escaping of difficult characters, but that
doesn't work either. Is there a way to set which characters are
allowed in a query or something similar?

Right now, the parser doesn't know what to do with the characters like
= and &.
