NAME

       CREATE TEXT SEARCH PARSER - define a new text search parser

SYNOPSIS

       CREATE TEXT SEARCH PARSER name (
           START = start_function ,
           GETTOKEN = gettoken_function ,
           END = end_function ,
           LEXTYPES = lextypes_function
           [, HEADLINE = headline_function ]
       )

DESCRIPTION

       CREATE  TEXT  SEARCH  PARSER  creates  a new text search parser. A text
       search parser defines a method for splitting a text string into  tokens
       and  assigning  types  (categories)  to  the  tokens.   A parser is not
       particularly useful by itself, but must be bound  into  a  text  search
       configuration  along  with some text search dictionaries to be used for
       searching.

       If a schema name is given then the text search parser is created in the
       specified schema. Otherwise it is created in the current schema.

       You  must  be  a  superuser  to  use  CREATE TEXT SEARCH PARSER.  (This
       restriction is made because an erroneous text search parser  definition
       could confuse or even crash the server.)

       Refer to in the documentation for further information.

PARAMETERS

       name   The  name  of the text search parser to be created. The name can
              be schema-qualified.

       start_function
              The name of the start function for the parser.

       gettoken_function
              The name of the get-next-token function for the parser.

       end_function
              The name of the end function for the parser.

       lextypes_function
              The name of the lextypes function for  the  parser  (a  function
              that  returns  information  about  the  set  of  token  types it
              produces).

       headline_function
              The name of the headline function for  the  parser  (a  function
              that summarizes a set of tokens).

       The function names can be schema-qualified if necessary. Argument types
       are not given, since the argument list for each  type  of  function  is
       predetermined. All except the headline function are required.

       The arguments can appear in any order, not only the one shown above.

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no CREATE TEXT SEARCH PARSER statement in the SQL standard.
