Subject Re: Dates before 1970
Date Sun, 09 Jun 2002 20:53:32 GMT
Hello,

Ok, I found Philip's patch here:
http://nagoya.apache.org/eyebrowse/ReadMsg?listName=lucene-user@jakarta.apache.org&msgId=116180

Am I missing something or is this patch specific to Philip's
application?  I'm referring to the DATE_OFFSET value of 200 years.
Is there any way of making it more generic?
For instance, I'm dealing with dates whose values I do not know ahead
of time.  Some dates that I see are 09-Jun-102 or 25-Oct-100.  These
are dates returned by various broken web servers out there.  These
particular dates should obviously be 09-Jun-2002 and 25-Oct-2000.

What can we do in DateField to allow indexing of dates before 1970?
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Otis
