Detailed Description

A posting source which generates weights from a value slot.

This is a base class for classes which generate weights using values stored in the specified slot. For example, ValueWeightPostingSource uses sortable_unserialise to convert values directly to weights.

The upper bound on the weight returned is set to DBL_MAX. Subclasses should call set_maxweight() in their init() methods after calling ValuePostingSource::init() if they know a tighter bound on the weight.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ ValuePostingSource()

Xapian::ValuePostingSource::ValuePostingSource ( Xapian::valueno  slot_)
explicit

Construct a ValuePostingSource.

Parameters
slot_The value slot to read values from.

Member Function Documentation

◆ at_end()

bool Xapian::ValuePostingSource::at_end ( ) const
virtual

Return true if the current position is past the last entry in this list.

At least one of next(), skip_to() or check() will be called before this method is first called.

Implements Xapian::PostingSource.

◆ check()

bool Xapian::ValuePostingSource::check ( Xapian::docid  did,
double  min_wt 
)
virtual

Check if the specified docid occurs.

The caller is required to ensure that the specified document id did actually exists in the database. If it does, it must move to that document id, and return true. If it does not, it may either:

  • return true, having moved to a definite position (including "at_end"), which must be the same position as skip_to() would have moved to.

or

  • return false, having moved to an "indeterminate" position, such that a subsequent call to next() or skip_to() will move to the next matching position after did.

Generally, this method should act like skip_to() and return true if that can be done at little extra cost.

Otherwise it should simply check if a particular docid is present, returning true if it is, and false if it isn't.

The default implementation calls skip_to() and always returns true.

Xapian will always call init() on a PostingSource before calling this for the first time.

Note: in the case of a multi-database search, the docid specified is the docid in the single subdatabase relevant to this posting source. See the init() method for details.

Parameters
didThe document id to check.
min_wtThe minimum weight contribution that is needed (this is just a hint which subclasses may ignore).

Reimplemented from Xapian::PostingSource.

Reimplemented in Xapian::DecreasingValueWeightPostingSource.

◆ done()

void Xapian::ValuePostingSource::done ( )
inline

End the iteration.

Calls to at_end() will return true after calling this method.

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ get_database()

Xapian::Database Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_database ( ) const
inline

The database we're reading values from.

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ get_docid()

Xapian::docid Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_docid ( ) const
virtual

Return the current docid.

This method may assume that it will only be called when there is a "current document". See get_weight() for details.

Note: in the case of a multi-database search, the returned docid should be in the single subdatabase relevant to this posting source. See the init() method for details.

Implements Xapian::PostingSource.

◆ get_slot()

Xapian::valueno Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_slot ( ) const
inline

The slot we're reading values from.

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ get_started()

bool Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_started ( ) const
inline

Flag indicating if we've started (true if we have).

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ get_termfreq_est()

Xapian::doccount Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_termfreq_est ( ) const
virtual

An estimate of the number of documents this object can return.

It must always be true that:

get_termfreq_min() <= get_termfreq_est() <= get_termfreq_max()

Xapian will always call init() on a PostingSource before calling this for the first time.

Implements Xapian::PostingSource.

◆ get_termfreq_max()

Xapian::doccount Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_termfreq_max ( ) const
virtual

An upper bound on the number of documents this object can return.

Xapian will always call init() on a PostingSource before calling this for the first time.

Implements Xapian::PostingSource.

◆ get_termfreq_min()

Xapian::doccount Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_termfreq_min ( ) const
virtual

A lower bound on the number of documents this object can return.

Xapian will always call init() on a PostingSource before calling this for the first time.

Implements Xapian::PostingSource.

◆ get_value()

std::string Xapian::ValuePostingSource::get_value ( ) const
inline

Read current value.

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ init()

void Xapian::ValuePostingSource::init ( const Database db)
virtual

Set this PostingSource to the start of the list of postings.

This is called automatically by the matcher prior to each query being processed.

If a PostingSource is used for multiple searches, init() will therefore be called multiple times, and must handle this by using the database passed in the most recent call.

Parameters
dbThe database which the PostingSource should iterate through.

Note: in the case of a multi-database search, a separate PostingSource will be used for each database (the separate PostingSources will be obtained using clone()), and each PostingSource will be passed one of the sub-databases as the db parameter here. The db parameter will therefore always refer to a single database. All docids passed to, or returned from, the PostingSource refer to docids in that single database, rather than in the multi-database.

Implements Xapian::PostingSource.

Reimplemented in Xapian::ValueMapPostingSource, Xapian::DecreasingValueWeightPostingSource, and Xapian::ValueWeightPostingSource.

◆ next()

void Xapian::ValuePostingSource::next ( double  min_wt)
virtual

Advance the current position to the next matching document.

The PostingSource starts before the first entry in the list, so next(), skip_to() or check() must be called before any methods which need the context of the current position.

Xapian will always call init() on a PostingSource before calling this for the first time.

Parameters
min_wtThe minimum weight contribution that is needed (this is just a hint which subclasses may ignore).

Implements Xapian::PostingSource.

Reimplemented in Xapian::DecreasingValueWeightPostingSource.

◆ set_termfreq_est()

void Xapian::ValuePostingSource::set_termfreq_est ( Xapian::doccount  termfreq_est_)
inline

An estimate of the term frequency.

Subclasses should set this if they are overriding the next(), skip_to() or check() methods.

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ set_termfreq_max()

void Xapian::ValuePostingSource::set_termfreq_max ( Xapian::doccount  termfreq_max_)
inline

An upper bound on the term frequency.

Subclasses should set this if they are overriding the next(), skip_to() or check() methods.

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ set_termfreq_min()

void Xapian::ValuePostingSource::set_termfreq_min ( Xapian::doccount  termfreq_min_)
inline

Set a lower bound on the term frequency.

Subclasses should set this if they are overriding the next(), skip_to() or check() methods to return fewer documents.

Added in 1.2.23 and 1.3.5.

◆ skip_to()

void Xapian::ValuePostingSource::skip_to ( Xapian::docid  did,
double  min_wt 
)
virtual

Advance to the specified docid.

If the specified docid isn't in the list, position ourselves on the first document after it (or at_end() if no greater docids are present).

If the current position is already the specified docid, this method will leave the position unmodified.

If the specified docid is earlier than the current position, the behaviour is unspecified. A sensible behaviour would be to leave the current position unmodified, but it is also reasonable to move to the specified docid.

The default implementation calls next() repeatedly, which works but skip_to() can often be implemented much more efficiently.

Xapian will always call init() on a PostingSource before calling this for the first time.

Note: in the case of a multi-database search, the docid specified is the docid in the single subdatabase relevant to this posting source. See the init() method for details.

Parameters
didThe document id to advance to.
min_wtThe minimum weight contribution that is needed (this is just a hint which subclasses may ignore).
