Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4285) Improve FST API usability for mere mortals
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 19:00:03 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-4285:

bq. That is bad API design; it should return an FST with nothing init.

+1, this has also bit me ... null return is bad when it's surprising, as clearly it is here.

Somehow we just need an FST that accepts nothing.

is hard to use for the vast majority of users like me.  I know that performance of FSTs is
really important, but surely a lot can be done without sacrificing that.
