Package TWiki::Search

This module implements all the search functionality.

ClassMethod new ($session)

Constructor for the singleton Search engine object.

StaticMethod getTextPattern ($text,$pattern)

Sanitise search pattern - currently used for FormattedSearch only

ObjectMethod searchWeb (...)

Search one or more webs according to the parameters.

If _callback is set, that means the caller wants results as soon as they are ready. =_callback_ should be set to a reference to a function which takes _cbdata as the first parameter and remaining parameters the same as 'print'.

If _callback is set, the result is always undef. Otherwise the result is a string containing the rendered search results.

If inline is set, then the results are not decorated with the search template head and tail blocks.

SMELL: If format is set, template will be ignored.

SMELL: If regex is defined, it will force type='regex'

SMELL: If template is defined bookview will not work

SMELL: it seems that if you define _callback or inline then you are responsible for converting the TML to HTML yourself!

FIXME: callback cannot work with format parameter (consider format='| $topic |'
