Right, so I got all confused with the chemistry -- That solution won't work.

If you're just allowing them to do wildcards by tokenizing on the syntax of
chemistry, then you could split the words up according to that..

Subject: derive tokens from single token

Hi All,

I'm looking for a way to implement simultaneous left and right truncation. 

The goal is to enable the user to search for e.g. "*hydronaphth*" and find
"hexahydronaphthalene" as well as "heptahydronaphthalin".

To achieve that functionality, I'd like to index terms in the way that from
a token "foobar" the tokens "oobar" and "obar" ( e.g. mininum word length =
would be derived and added to the index. I tried to extend TokenFilter, but 
all I get is either "oobar" or "obar", depends on when 'return' is called. 

How could I add such extra tokens to the tokenStream? Any thoughts on this

Best regards,

René Hackl
