NAME

KinoSearch::Docs::Tutorial - Step-by-step introduction to KinoSearch.

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 KinoSearch distribution, along with finished indexing and search apps.

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

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.
