Subject Re: "UnStored" vs "Reader"
Date Mon, 17 May 2004 02:48:28 GMT
Actually, I had never thought about this particular question before, but I
think the question is a fair and reasonable - no reason to get frustrated
about it.  There's a lot about Lucene that's obvious to those who've studied
it as extensively as has Erik (and I, like much of us, are anxiously
awaiting his book).  But there're also plenty of folks (myself included) who
are pretty familiar with Lucene but still find some of the many potentially
interesting features still a bit mysterious.

Regards,

Terry
