Subject prefix query with multiple words
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2001 23:42:00 GMT
Hey all-

Wondering if it's possible to a prefix query, but with multiple words;
basically trying to get

+artist:"eric clap*"

to return documents with artists "eric clap", "eric clapton", "eric
claptonean", etc.

You can get close by parsing into multiple words first and prefixing the
last word (i.e. "Eric Clap" -> +artist:eric +artist:clap*), but this also
gives you results that have the phrase in the wrong order (i.e. returns
results with artist "clap eric")

Is there any way to do this right?
