Highlighting from multiple indexes


#1

Hi.

I’m searching multiple indexes by passing an array of paths to
Index::IndexReader.new(). I get several hits back, and can determine
the document id of each.

Now I want to fetch highlighted excerpts from a field in one of the
matched documents. The problem I’m having is that Index::IndexReader
doesn’t have a highlight() method. And, while Index::Index does have
a highlight() method, its new() method doesn’t allow for an array of
paths.

What am I missing, here?

Thanks in advance.

The Searcher class :slight_smile:
Create a searcher from your IndexReader and use it’s highlight method.

Cheers,
