Hi all,

I wonder how lucene FuzzyQuery works as it seems to take much longer time
than a normal query. Does it generate all the possible terms and search for
them ??
In current versions of lucene it is documented to be slow: "Warning: this
query is not very scalable with its default prefix length of 0 - in this
case, *every* term will be enumerated and cause an edit score calculation."

If you want it to be faster, use lucene trunk, which uses a different, more
sophisticated algorithm:
