I'd like to write a custom analyzer whose only difference to
org.apache.lucene.analysis.br.BrazilianAnalyzer is that I want it to discard
numeric tokens from the input. I've looked at the code and also at the

What do you think?
Hi, in general the supplied analyzers are basically very general
So i would make your own analyzer: except using a tokenizer that
discards numbers (like lowercasetokenizer) instead of
standardtokenizer: something like LowerCaseTokenizer +
BrazilianStemFilter + Brazilian stopwords in a stopfilter.
I investigated this issue further and found out that StandardTokenizer is
actually desirable for my needs - I need to index emails, acronyms, etc. So
I'll use package org.apache.lucene.analysis.StopFilter as a starting point
to try and write a custom TokenFilter to discard numbers, then just extend
BrazilianAnalyzer and use this custom TokenFilter as the final filter in the
chain. I believe the end result will be simpler and cleaner this way.
