So I need to do something like CREATE TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_diction ( template = snowball, synonym = include_only_these_words ); which will then look for a file called include_only_these_words.syn? I would prefer to be able to do something like this CREATE TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_diction ( template = snowball, include = justthese ); ...which makes more sense to anyone reading it and I also want to make the comparison case insensitive. Would it be better to 1. include a new dictionary file (dict_strict, as you suggest) 2. a) allow case sensitivity as another option in dictionaries b) allow "include" as another word for "stoplist", but with the meaning reversed? e.g. CREATE TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_diction ( template = snowball, include = justthese, case_sensitive = true ); -- Simon Riggs 2ndQuadrant http://www.2ndQuadrant.com ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 1: if posting/reading through Usenet, please send an appropriate subscribe-nomail command to [EMAIL PROTECTED] so that your message can get through to the mailing list cleanly
