This package provides Xapian Tcl bindings which should work with any version of Tcl >= 8.1 (by using Tcl's stubs mechanism.) The Xapian search engine library is a highly adaptable toolkit which allows developers to easily add advanced indexing and search facilities to their own applications. It implements the probabilistic model of information retrieval, and provides facilities for performing ranked free-text searches, relevance feedback, phrase searching, boolean searching, stemming, and simultaneous update and searching. It is highly scalable, and is capable of working with collections containing hundreds of millions of documents. The Xapian Tcl bindings provide an interface to the Xapian library from the Tcl programming language, allowing both indexing and retrieval operations.
