KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial - Step-by-step introduction to KinoSearch.
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/
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.
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
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.
More advanced and esoteric subjects are covered in KinoSearch::Docs::Cookbook.
