Subject Re: [greenstone-users] How to search exact phrase in Full TextIndex
I experimented on one of our collections and using double quotes seems to work. I have a document (image) that has the phrase "about 1895" in the dc.Description and I would pull this up when searching on that phrase. I tried reversing the words in the phrase to "1895 about" and searching and I didn't get anything, so I know it's searching exact phrase, not all of the words (logical AND) or some of the words (logical OR). Try something like this and see what you come up with.

Dear All

Can anyone guide me how to search the exact pharase in Search Page of any
digital library developed in GSDL? For example we use double quotes in most
of search engines to search the exact phrase.
