NAME

Lucy::Search::Collector - Process hits.

SYNOPSIS

    # Abstract base class.

DESCRIPTION

A Collector decides what to do with the hits that a Matcher iterates through, based on how the abstract collect() method is implemented.

Collectors operate on individual segments, but must operate within the context of a larger collection. Each time the collector moves to a new segment, Set_Reader(), Set_Base() and Set_Matcher() will be called, and the collector must take the updated information into account.

CONSTRUCTORS

    package MyCollector;
    use base qw( Lucy::Search::Collector );
    our %foo;
    sub new {
        my $self = shift->SUPER::new;
        my %args = @_;
        $foo{$$self} = $args{foo};
        return $self;
    }

Abstract constructor. Takes no arguments.

ABSTRACT METHODS
