◆ Stem() [3/3]

Xapian::Stem::Stem ( StemImplementation p)
explicit

Construct a Xapian::Stem object with a user-provided stemming algorithm.

You can subclass Xapian::StemImplementation to implement your own stemming algorithm (or to wrap a third-party algorithm) and then wrap your implementation in a Xapian::Stem object to pass to the Xapian API.

Parameters
pThe user-subclassed StemImplementation object. This is reference counted, and so will be automatically deleted by the Xapian::Stem wrapper when no longer required.

Member Function Documentation

◆ get_available_languages()

static std::string Xapian::Stem::get_available_languages ( )
inlinestatic

Return a list of available languages.

Each stemmer is only included once in the list (not once for each alias). The name included is the English name of the language.

The list is returned as a string, with language names separated by spaces. This is a static method, so a Xapian::Stem object is not required for this operation.

◆ operator()()

std::string Xapian::Stem::operator() ( const std::string &  word) const

Stem a word.

Parameters
worda word to stem.
Returns
the stem
