NAME

KinoSearch::Store::RAMFolder - In-memory Folder.

SYNOPSIS

    my $folder = KinoSearch::Store::RAMFolder->new;

    # or sometimes...
    my $folder = KinoSearch::Store::RAMFolder->new(
        path   => '/path/to/folder',
    );

DESCRIPTION

RAMFolder is an entirely in-memory implementation of KinoSearch::Store::Folder. It serves two main purposes.

First, it's possible to load an existing FSFolder into memory, which can improve search-speed -- if you have that kind of RAM to spare. Needless to say, any FSFolder you try to load this way should be appropriately modest in size.

Second, RAMFolder is handy for testing and development.

METHODS

new

    my $folder = KinoSearch::Store::RAMFolder->new(
        path   => '/path/to/folder',   # optional
    );

Constructor. Takes one optional parameter, path. If path is supplied, KinoSearch will try to read an FSFolder at that location into memory; otherwise the Folder starts out empty.
