Proximity searches are searches for terms that are near in the
document. ZCatalog uses "..." as near operator.
It implements a proximity search as an "and" search and assigns
the document a relevance that is inverse proportional
to the distance of the term occurrences.

The patch fixes Zope 2.1.6 ZCatalog's "near" operator.
It will work only for Zope 2.1.6.

ZCatalog is a development hotspot. Lots have changed
in the CVS and for Zope 2.2. Maybe, a patch is no
longer needed for Zope 2.2.


is the small patch for LocalFS. It gives LocalFS the necessary
infrastructure, that Zope's "find" machinery works for it.
This machinery is also used by ZCatalog.
