=head1 NAME

Search::Query - polyglot query parsing


 use Search::Query;
 my $parser = Search::Query->parser();
 my $query  = $parser->parse('+hello -world now');
 print $query;  # same as print $query->stringify;



This class provides documentation and class methods.

Search::Query started as a fork of the excellent Search::QueryParser module
and was then rewritten to provide support for alternate query dialects.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 parser

Returns a Search::Query::Parser object. See the documentation
for L<Search::Query::Parser> for supported query syntax and how
to customize the Parser.


sub parser {
    my $class = shift;
    return Search::Query::Parser->new(@_);

=head2 get_query_class( I<name> )

Returns a Search::Query::Dialect-based class name corresponding
to I<name>. I<name> defaults to 'Native'.


sub get_query_class {
    my $class = shift;
    my $name = shift or croak "query_class name required";

    return $name if $name =~ m/^Search::Query::Dialect::/;

    for my $dialect ( $class->dialects ) {
        if ( $dialect =~ m/::$name$/i ) {
            eval "require $dialect";
            croak $@ if $@;
            return $dialect;

    croak "No such Dialect available: $name";

=head2 get_dialect( I<name> )

Alias for get_query_class().


*get_dialect = \&get_query_class;
