From Reyna Melara <>
Subject is it possible to index wiki markup files?
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2012 19:13:19 GMT
Hi, my name is Reyna Melara I'm a PhD student form Mexico, and I have a set
of 11,051,447 files with txt extension but the content of each file is in
fact in wiki format, I want and I need them to be indexed, but I don't know
if I have to convert this content to flat text, I have been reading and I
have found that:

"At the core of Lucene's logical architecture is the idea of a *document*
 containing *fields* of text. This flexibility allows Lucene's API to be
independent of the file format <>.
Text from PDFs <>,
, Microsoft Word <>, and
OpenDocument <> documents, as well
as many others (except images), can all be indexed as long as their textual
information can be extracted."

So, I guess there's no problem if I leave the files just like they are

My question about would be: Do I get the same results and advantages of
this files? Will it be good?

Thanks a lot, send best regards.
