NAME

Plucene::Analysis::StopFilter - the stop filter

SYNOPSIS

        # isa Plucene::Analysis::TokenFilter

        my $next = $stop_filter->next;

DESCRIPTION

This removes stop words from a token stream.

Instances of the StopFilter class are tokens filters that removes from the indexed text words of your choice. Typically this is used to filter out common words ('the', 'a' 'if' etc) that increase the overhead but add no value during searches.

METHODS

next

        my $next = $stop_filter->next;

This returns the next input token whose term is not a stop word.
