I have a bit of a problem with using freetext indexes because there are a 
LOT of important 3 letter words in my database and as I am using shared 
hosting so do not have the option to recompile MySql.  Can't quite figure 
why 3 is not the default (car, dog, cat war, man, bed, ....).  Maybe so you 
would have to recompile to be able to find s_e_x ;).

The other thing I cant figure out is how much data you need for it to 
actually work well.  There is a reference in the manual saying it works 
better on bigger data sets but no indication as to what it means by big.

Anyway, this means I am looking for an alternative which can be implemented 
on php4.  Has anyone any suggestions?



Also in the manual it mentions freetext search
