year of on-line technical support and
rules and noise-word files
products are supplied with stemming
rules and a noise-word
file for English(US). Stemming is the only
search expansion option which is 'on' by
default in the dtSearch end-user products;
the reason for this is that stemming is
almost always useful when making a search,
and adds little to the time required to
make a search. Unlike some other search
engines, dtSearch applies stemming at search
time, there is no need to build indexes
specifically to apply stemming and no need
to build separate indexes for each language
With the stemming option selected dtSearch
will find plurals and many other word variations;
for example a search on print
will find printers,
printing, printed automatically.
if you are searching documents written in
other languages, the English stemming rules
will cause you to miss many word variations
which do not occur in English (e.g. verb
and noun changes with gender), and you may
find that words which are unrelated are
found in error.
the English noise word list, which is designed
to remove unwanted English words from your
index to keep the index size small, is not
suitable for other languages; your indexes
may contain many words which will not be
useful in searches and which will add to
the size of your indexes.
Use language specific files in place of
the default US English files. These are
supplied in the form of Language Extension
Packs which contain files for many languages.
All files are in Unicode format.
