Searching moduleby ZydecoSue (Scribe)
|on Jan 29, 2001 at 23:13 UTC||Need Help??|
ZydecoSue has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Can anyone recommend a good module for adding good seach capabilities to a web site?
Yes, I know about grep, but I'm looking for something that can report individual hits as well as phrase hits. Ideally, this would provide soundex support as well.
For example, suppose your site catalogs albums and each page provides a track listing. The site is categorized by artist and musical style.
I'm looking for some that lets you search for "giogio morodor evolution" which would return pages listing
(Yes, it should be in a database, but let's keep it simple for the moment.)
I noticed that CPAN contains one called Search-InvertedIndex, but that seems really complicated for I thought should be a simple task.
