KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial - Overview
KinoSearch is a flexible tool for building search applications. This tutorial explores its basic functionality by starting with a minimalist CGI search app based on KinoSearch::Simple and transforming it, step by step, into an "advanced search" interface utilizing more flexible core modules like KinoSearch::InvIndexer and KinoSearch::Searcher.
More advanced and esoteric subjects are covered in KinoSearch::Docs::Cookbook.
KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial::BeyondSimple - rebuild the app using core classes instead of KinoSearch::Simple.
KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial::IncrementalIndexing - modify the index by adding and deleting documents. [TODO]
KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial::Highlighter - augment your search results with highlighted excerpts. [TODO]
KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial::QueryObjects - unlock advanced search features by using Query objects instead of query strings. [TODO]
The source material used by the tutorial app -- an html presentation of the United States constitution -- can be found in the
sampledirectory at the root of the KinoSearch distribution, along with finished indexing and search apps.
sample/USConSchema.pm # custom KinoSearch::Schema subclass sample/invindexer.pl # indexing app sample/search.cgi # search app sample/conf.pl # shared configuration file sample/us_constitution # html documents
The user is expected to be familiar with OO Perl and basic CGI programming.
This tutorial assumes a Unix-flavored operating system and the Apache webserver, but it will work with minor modifications on other rigs.
