Subject RE: Call for features in next release
Date Wed, 22 May 2002 13:21:39 GMT
Does anyone see a problem with adding support for storing unindexed,
untokenized *binary* data as document fields?  At the moment, the closest
thing we have is unindexed, untokenized *character* data.  Looking at the
source, this will be a trivial change, but I'm curious to learn if there are
specific reasons (other than inclination and opportunity) that this has been
left out.

Another feature could be the ability to retrieve the number of
occurences
not only for a term
but also for a Phrase (see
