NAME

       Search::Xapian::Database - Search database object

DESCRIPTION

       This class represents a Xapian database for searching. See
       Search::Xapian::WritableDatabase for an object suitable for indexing.  To perform
       searches, this class works with the Search::Xapian::Query object.

METHODS

       new <database>
           Class constructor. Can either take a path to an existing database or another database
           class as the first parameter

       add_database
           Add an existing database (or group of databases) to those accessed by this object.

       reopen
           This re-opens the database(s) to the latest available version(s). It can be used

           Xapian::DatabaseModifiedError.

       close
           Close the database. This also implies a commit() unless a transaction is in progress.

       enquire [<query>]
           Returns a new Search::Xapian::Enquire object. Any extra parameters are passed to
           set_query.

       get_termfreq <term>
           Get the number of documents in the database indexed by a given term.

       term_exists <term>
           returns true if this term exists in the database, or false otherwise.

       allterms_begin [<prefix>]
           Returns a Search::Xapian::TermIterator iterating over the termlist for the the entire

           string are returned.

       allterms_end [<prefix>]
           Returns a Search::Xapian::TermIterator pointing to the end of the termlist
           corresponding to allterms_begin.

       termlist_begin <docid>
           Returns a Search::Xapian::TermIterator pointing to the start of the termlist for a
           given document.

       termlist_end <docid>
           Returns a Search::Xapian::TermIterator pointing to the end of the termlist for a given
           document.
