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.
