Hi all, Thanks to the authors for the amazing work on Ferret! I have a question about setting up the standard operators on a QueryParser. I would like my parser to default to AND queries rather than the default OR. In Java I would simply do: QueryParser parser = new QueryParser("contents", new StandardAnalyzer()); parser.setDefaultOperator(QueryParser.Operator.AND); But I can't find the corresponding method in the Ferret API. Have I missed it or is there a workaround? Thanks, Roop

You can use this option in the Ferret::Index::Index constructor (which will internally create a query parser) or directly when constructing the query parser yourself. Jens -- webit!

Thanks. The difference between setting the AND/OR default operator versus setting the MUST/SHOULD default occur appears to be redundant then? In any case, thanks for the tip.
