Subject Recreating a document from its index
Date Wed, 16 May 2007 22:58:30 GMT
Hi All,
I have a question to which I could not answer reading the
documentation and searching the mailing list archive: is it possible
to recreate a document (or a good approximation of it) from its index?

If I well understood the doc, the index stores each term, and per each
term the positions where it occurs in the document. Does it mean that
if I enumerate all terms I can recreate the document knowing their
positions? If the answer is yes, is there a way to disable the storage
of terms positions? Is it used for the search too?

Thanks in advance to anyone getting the time to answer.
