Subject [greenstone-users] Search question
Hello!

I'm trying to perform search with 'ignore word endings' option turned on. But there is a problem:
if I do search for 'libr', I get results for 'library', but not for 'librarian'. If I searching for
'librar', I'm getting results for 'librarian', but not for 'library'. Search for 'lib' is failed:
both library and librarian was not found.

I think that 'ignore word endings' is a little bit different from 'search with word truncation',
and there is a question: is it possible to configure greenstone to perform 'search with word
truncation'? If not, is it possible to add support for russian word endings to greenstone?

And if not, is it possible to switch from mgpp indexer to, for example, mnogosearch or glimpse or
ht://dig or any other search engine, wich supports multiple languages or searches with word
truncations?
