My understanding is that part of the problem is that sorting a dataset based
upon regular expression (doesn't matter what algorithm you use) creates a
rather large tree of possibilities that is largely impractical to sort, at
least not without a lot of overhead.  

My compromise for the searches that I'm planning on using is to allow regex
searches of "search results" from the catalog.  This requires a bit more
patience, as it is an unindexed search...

Subject: [Zope] ZCatalog and 'fuzzy logic'


Is there anyone who could try to give an estimate of how long it would
take to add fuzzy logic (regexp-like) searching capability to the
ZCatalog?

And reasoning as to why would be appreciated. ;)
