KinoSearch::Search::RangeQuery - Match a range of values.


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:


    # Match all articles by "Foo" published since the year 2000.
    my $range_query = KinoSearch::Search::RangeQuery->new(
        field         => 'publication_date',
        lower_term    => '2000-01-01',
        include_lower => 1,
    my $author_query = KinoSearch::Search::TermQuery->new(
        field => 'author_last_name',
        text  => 'Foo',
    my $and_query = KinoSearch::Search::ANDQuery->new(
        children => [ $range_query, $author_query ],
    my $hits = $searcher->hits( query => $and_query );


RangeQuery matches documents where the value for a particular field falls within a given range.


new( [labeled params] )

    my $range_query = KinoSearch::Search::RangeQuery->new(
        field         => 'product_number', # required
        lower_term    => '003',            # see below
        upper_term    => '060',            # see below
        include_lower => 0,                # default true
        include_upper => 0,                # default true

Takes 5 parameters; field is required, as is at least one of either lower_term or upper_term.

  • field - The name of a sortable field.

  • lower_term - Lower delimiter. If not supplied, all values less than upper_term will pass.

  • upper_term - Upper delimiter. If not supplied, all values greater than lower_term will pass.

  • include_lower - Indicates whether docs which match lower_term should be included in the results.

  • include_upper - Indicates whether docs which match upper_term should be included in the results.


KinoSearch::Search::RangeQuery isa KinoSearch::Search::Query isa KinoSearch::Object::Obj.
