NAME ^

Lucy::Search::Matcher - Match a set of document ids.

SYNOPSIS ^

    # abstract base class

DESCRIPTION ^

A Matcher iterates over a set of ascending document ids. Some Matchers implement score() and can assign relevance scores to the docs that they match. Other implementations may be match-only.

CONSTRUCTORS ^

new

    my $matcher = MyMatcher->SUPER::new;

Abstract constructor.

ABSTRACT METHODS ^

next

    my $int = $matcher->next();

Proceed to the next doc id.

Returns: A positive doc id, or 0 once the iterator is exhausted.

get_doc_id

    my $int = $matcher->get_doc_id();

Return the current doc id. Valid only after a successful call to next() or advance() and must not be called otherwise.

score

    my $float = $matcher->score();

Return the score of the current document.

Only Matchers which are used for scored search need implement score().

METHODS ^

advance

    my $int = $matcher->advance($target);

Advance the iterator to the first doc id greater than or equal to target. The default implementation simply calls next() over and over, but subclasses have the option of doing something more efficient.

Returns: A positive doc id, or 0 once the iterator is exhausted.

INHERITANCE ^

Lucy::Search::Matcher isa Clownfish::Obj.
