Hi,

This is just a quick announcement of a Ruby extension to Mikio
Hirabayashi's Odeum Inverted Index library which is part of both
Estraier (http://estraier.sourceforge.net/ ) and QDBM
(http://qdbm.sourceforge.net/ ).

You can download the source package from:

http://www.zedshaw.com/projects/ruby_odeum/

Ruby/Odeum lets you index a set of documents (including meta-data) and
then use the resulting index to do fast searches by words.  The
extension supports most of the features and should become more idiomatic
as I work on it.

Comments are welcomed.

Zed
