NAME ^

Lucy::Docs::Tutorial - Step-by-step introduction to Apache Lucy.

ABSTRACT ^

Explore Apache Lucy's basic functionality by starting with a minimalist CGI search app based on Lucy::Simple and transforming it, step by step, into an "advanced search" interface utilizing more flexible core modules like Lucy::Index::Indexer and Lucy::Search::IndexSearcher.

DESCRIPTION ^

Chapters

Source materials

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 Lucy distribution, along with finished indexing and search apps.

    sample/indexer.pl        # indexing app
    sample/search.cgi        # search app
    sample/us_constitution   # corpus

Conventions

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.

SEE ALSO ^

More advanced and esoteric subjects are covered in Lucy::Docs::Cookbook.
