Subject can delete the index document Permanently?
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2003 07:57:35 GMT

Regarding the Lucene, delete(int) and delete(Term) function,
After delete the index document with the function, It will not found when
searching from it.
But, The size of the Index Storage was not reduce? It seek like just mark
the index document as deleted status only.
So, how to delete the index document Permanently?

**The delete(int) method is used when the sequential number of the document
to be deleted within the index is known.
**The delete(Term) method can be used when a term that matches exactly the
document(s) you want to delete can be specified.

Please kindly help. Thanks.
