Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4562) Pair-wise FST key comparator by ords
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 00:22:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4562?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13499964#comment-13499964

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-4562:
--------------------------------------------

That's a cool idea!  In the patch in LUCENE-3729 I just do the full lookup and then compare
... but making it incremental (this issue) is a great idea.

> It would be useful to have an FST utility method to do a compare() operation between
a key in one FST and a key in a second FST, by ords instead of the keys.  So the input is
the ord for FST1 and an ord for FST2 and the output is -1, 0, 1.  The result is the same as
if you were to do a Util.getByOutput for both ords against their respective FSTs then compare
the resulting byte arrays.
> The point of this is to speedup LUCENE-3729 further, which impact sorting across segments.
 I would be surprised if it doesn't have applicability to other problems.
