Subject Searching using dash in words/abbreviations
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2008 19:16:23 GMT
I'm sure this has been asked before, but googling only finds me the
question, not the answer.

I'm trying to search for company ABC Inc. in places where it may be
mentioned as A-B-C Inc.  Lucene is doing something with those dashes,
though, that prevents me from getting accurate results.  Putting it as
a phrase "A-B-C" doesn't help; putting in escape characters "A\-B\-C"
doesn't help.

How do I make this work so that my users can find what they're looking
for?  Thank you.
