NAME

KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial - Step-by-step introduction to KinoSearch.

DEPRECATED

The KinoSearch code base has been assimilated by the Apache Lucy project. The "KinoSearch" namespace has been deprecated, but development continues under our new name at our new home: http://lucy.apache.org/

ABSTRACT

Explore KinoSearch's basic functionality by starting with a minimalist CGI search app based on KSx::Simple and transforming it, step by step, into an "advanced search" interface utilizing more flexible core modules like KinoSearch::Index::Indexer and KinoSearch::Search::IndexSearcher.

DESCRIPTION

Chapters

Source materials

The source material used by the tutorial app -- a multi-text-file presentation of the United States constitution -- can be found in the sample directory at the root of the KinoSearch distribution, along with finished indexing and search apps.

    sample/indexer.pl        # indexing app
    sample/search.cgi        # search app
    sample/us_constitution   # corpus

Conventions

The user is expected to be familiar with OO Perl and basic CGI programming.

The code in this tutorial assumes a Unix-flavored operating system and the Apache webserver, but will work with minor modifications on other setups.

SEE ALSO

More advanced and esoteric subjects are covered in KinoSearch::Docs::Cookbook.
