NAME

Search::Xapian::PositionIterator - Iterate over sets of positions.

DESCRIPTION

This iterator represents a stream of positions for a term. It overloads ++ for advancing the iterator, or you can explicitly call the inc method. This class also overloads eq, ne, ==, !=, "" (stringification) and 0+ (conversion to an integer).

METHODS

new

Constructor. Defaults to an uninitialized iterator.

clone
inc

Advance the iterator by one. (Called implictly by ++ overloading).

skip_to <termpos>

Skip the iterator to term position termpos, or the first term position after termpos if termpos isn't in the list of term positions being iterated.

equal <term>

Checks if a term is the same as this term. Also overloaded to the eq and == operators.

nequal <term>

Checks if a term is different from this term. Also overloaded to the ne and != operators.

get_termpos

Return the term position the iterator is currently on. Also implemented as conversion to an integer.

get_description

Return a description of this object. Also implemented as stringification.
