Hi everyone,

I tried sending a message as a reply a while back on my previous topic, but it didn't go through. (Tried Gmane), not even when I 'authorized' the reply. So I'll just paste it here for reference, below this message. It might help some people. But now I have one other small problem, and I'm not sure if it is actually my mistake (although I'm pretty sure it is :))

I'm trying to use the XapianQueryParser (in PHP5), but I get an error everytime.

$odb = new XapianDatabase($db);
$ostem = new XapianStem("en");
$oqparser = new XapianQueryParser();$oqparser->set_stemmer($ostem);$oqparser->set_database($odb);$oqparser->set_stemming_strategy(1);$oqparser->add_boolean_prefix("Q",1);$oquery = $oqparser->parse_query($query, 1);

I found some perl examples and 'ported' it over to the PHP version. Varying the flags (like XapianQueryParser::FLAG_PHRASE) or the boolean_prefix, etc. does not influence anything. I tried to lcoate the error in Xapian.php, but I think the error can be a bit deeper... I can query using XapianQuery, with a single keyword.

Fatal error: No matching function for overloaded 'new_Query' in /var/www/htdocs/almar/xapian.php on line 1123

Which is this function in XapianQuery

function __construct($tname_or_op__or_copyme_or_op=null,$wqf_or_left_or_subqs_or_q=1,$term_pos_or_right_or_param=0) { switch (func_num_args()) { case 0: $r=new_Query(); break;--> this line: default: $r=new_Query($tname_or_op__or_copyme_or_op,$wqf_or_left_or_subqs_or_q,$term_pos_or_right_or_param); } $this->_cPtr=$r; }

Anyone with suggestions? Many thanks already :).

(note: I try to post a follow-up through Gmane now, hope it all goes well!)
Hi Olly,
Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I had no luck, and decided to test it on a linux machine. Compiling the core and Omega was not a problem, the PHP bindings (again) were problematic, but after a few hours it was all fixed and working. Some path issues.
I've moved over to PHP5 for Xapian. Right now everything is going quite smoothly. The data of my spider is nciely put in mySQL, and then a script transforms the data there to a scriptindex.exe readable format (I'm using that on my Windows machine, I can just exchange the DB's between linux/windows for now, great!).
For anyone interested in some simple example code, check below. I've tried to convert a php4 example to the PHP5 one.
My only problem right now is this:
keywords: unhtml index lower truncate%5 field=keywordsdesc: unhtml index lower truncate%5 fieldÞsc url: unhtml field=url unique=Q boolean=Qcontent: unhtml weight=4 index field=content
This is the format for scriptindex. When I search my code with
<?include "xapian.php";$db = "db/sitedb";
$odb = new XapianDatabase($db);$ostem = new XapianStem("en");$oquery = new XapianQuery("visual");$oenquire = new XapianEnquire($odb);$oenquire->set_query($oquery);echo "<pre>";
echo "Perform: " . $oquery->get_description() . "<br/>";$omset = $oenquire->get_mset(0, 10);
echo "Matches: " . $omset->get_matches_estimated() . "<br/>";
$oiter = new XapianMSetIterator();$oiter = $omset->begin();
while (!$oiter->equals($omset->end())){ $odoc = $oiter->get_document();
//Loop through values. echo "Rank: " . $oiter->get_rank() . "<br/>"; echo "%: " . $oiter->get_percent() . "<br/>"; echo "Desc: " . $oiter->get_description() . "<br/>"; $data = $odoc->get_data(); echo $data;
echo $odoc->termlist_count() . "<br/>"; echo $odoc->values_count() . "<br/>";
$ovalues = $odoc->values_begin(); while (!$ovalues->equals($odoc->values_end())) { print_r($ovalues);
$ovalues->next(); }

I get nice results (great!). Except, I really, really want to have the individual values of the input data (keywords, description, url). I have found no way to do this, and the only funtion that seems to return it (alltogether) is get_data(). I thought "values" might be the solution, but those are just empty. I could not find anything in the manual. I know the cgi Omega demo seems to have a XML output template, which does about the same I guess (Do not have the opportunity to easily run the CGI bin demo's)
Could you possibly give me a hint on this one?
Many thanks already :)

NOTE: I think I got this fixed by using a 'value' field in Omega. Now I can get the individual values of titles, url's, etc. Is there any bad thing about doing it this way?

    I suspect it must have bounced during the recent email problems - I

    This patch should fix the problem:


    Though I really need to fix SWIG which generates this file...
