Search::Xapian is a Perl XS frontend to the Xapian C search library. The project is a fairly complete wrapper: most features of the Xapian library are made available for use from Perl.
Xapian is a highly adaptable toolkit that allows developers to easily add advanced indexing and search facilities to their own applications. It supports the Probabilistic Information Retrieval model as well as a rich set of boolean query operators. It's fast and scalable to hundreds of millions of documents.
To install this module type the following:
Makefile.PL looks for xapian-config on your PATH. You can specify a path for xapian-config by setting the XAPIAN_CONFIG environmental variable, and you can specify a C compiler by setting the CXX environmental variable.
