Bug: Searchs too Many Directories

Search.pm searches directories that start with . and _.

Test case

  • Create data/.session
  • Create data/_default if not already there
  • Turn on logging in Search.pm by uncomment debug call in _traceExec sub
  • Do a search on all Webs
  • Look in debug.txt to see these directories being searched.

Fix record

Just need to change last grep that forms @webList to:

grep { ! /^[._]/ }

We found something similar when we were building our IIS IndexServer based search. Our solution was to move some items around:

twiki/data/logs/ twiki/logs
twiki/data/debug.txt twiki/logs/debug.txt
twiki/data/warnings.txt twiki/logs/warnings.txt

I don't know whether you consider session files to be data or not. Perhaps the solution is to move /twiki/data/<WebNames> to /twiki/data/webs/<WebNames> ?

Fix Record

The change in Search.pm is already in TWikiAlphaRelease.
