       Lucy::Docs::Tutorial - Step-by-step introduction to Apache Lucy.


       Explore Apache Lucy's basic functionality by starting with a minimalist CGI search app
       based on Lucy::Simple and transforming it, step by step, into an "advanced search"
       interface utilizing more flexible core modules like Lucy::Index::Indexer and


       ·   Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::Simple - Build a bare-bones search app using Lucy::Simple.

       ·   Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::BeyondSimple - Rebuild the app using core classes like Indexer
           and IndexSearcher in place of Lucy::Simple.

       ·   Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::FieldType - Experiment with different field characteristics
           using subclasses of Lucy::Plan::FieldType.

       ·   Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::Analysis - Examine how the choice of Lucy::Analysis::Analyzer
           subclass affects search results.

       ·   Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::Highlighter - Augment search results with highlighted excerpts.

       ·   Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::QueryObjects - Unlock advanced search features by using Query
           objects instead of query strings.

   Source materials
       The source material used by the tutorial app -- a multi-text-file presentation of the
       United States constitution -- can be found in the "sample" directory at the root of the
       Lucy distribution, along with finished indexing and search apps.

           sample/        # indexing app
           sample/search.cgi        # search app
           sample/us_constitution   # corpus

       The user is expected to be familiar with OO Perl and basic CGI programming.

       The code in this tutorial assumes a Unix-flavored operating system and the Apache
       webserver, but will work with minor modifications on other setups.
