Text::Query::BuildSQL - Base class for SQL query builders
package Text::Query::BuildSQLsqldb; use Text::Query::BuildSQL; use vars qw(@ISA); @ISA = qw(Text::Query::BuildSQL);
Defines all the
build_* functions to build a syntax tree. The tree nodes are [ operator scope operand operand... ]. The
build_final_expression function translate the syntax tree in a
where clause using the
resolve method. If the scope of the search is not specified (simple query or advanced query without scope operator), the scope is set to the list of comma separated fields provided by the
-fields_searched option. The resulting
where clause is placed in the
select order provided with the
-select option, if any.
The string enclosed in single quotes must match exactly. The <string> token stands for an arbitrary string. A description enclosed in [something ...] means repeated 0 or N times.

Returns true if relevance ranking is possible, false if not. It is used by the
sortplusminus function. Returns false by default.
If relevance ranking is not possible, the semantic of the simple search is slighthly modified. When asking for
+a b c it shows all the documents containing
a and (
The normal behaviour is to return all the documents containing
a and to sort them to show first those containing (
c). When relevance ranking is not available the
c search terms are therefore useless. That is why we decided to change the semantic of the query if no relevance ranking is available.

FIELDS_LIST is a list of comma separated field names. It is used as the default scope if no scope is provided in the query string. The
build_final_expression function will
croak if this option is not provided and no scope operator were used.
