Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-4019) Parsing Hunspell affix rules without regexp condition
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 13:55:34 GMT
Luca Cavanna created LUCENE-4019:

             Summary: Parsing Hunspell affix rules without regexp condition
                 Key: LUCENE-4019
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: modules/analysis
    Affects Versions: 3.6
            Reporter: Luca Cavanna

We found out that some recent Dutch hunspell dictionaries contain suffix or prefix rules like
the following:

SFX Na N 1
SFX Na 0 ste

The rule on the second line doesn't contain the 5th parameter, which should be the condition
(a regexp usually). You can usually see a '.' as condition, meaning always (for every character).
As explained in LUCENE-3976 the readAffix method throws error. I wonder if we should treat
the missing value as a kind of default value, like '.'.  On the other hand I haven't found
any information about this within the spec. Any thoughts?
