Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4019) Parsing Hunspell affix rules without regexp condition
Date Thu, 31 May 2012 10:56:23 GMT


Chris Male commented on LUCENE-4019:

Hi Luca,

Thanks for taking a shot at this.

I wonder whether we can do improve the ParseException message? At the very least it should
include the line that is causing the problem so people can find it.  What would be even better
is if we also included the line number.  The latter is probably not so urgent, but it would
be handy to have for other parsing errors too.

Also I think the changes to the Factory are wrong:

+      if(strictAffixParsing.equalsIgnoreCase(TRUE)) ignoreCase = true;
+      else if(strictAffixParsing.equalsIgnoreCase(FALSE)) ignoreCase = false;

> We found out that some recent Dutch hunspell dictionaries contain suffix or prefix rules
like the following:
> {code} 
> SFX Na N 1
> SFX Na 0 ste
> {code}
> 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?
