Migrate from XS Search::Xapian to SWIG version
|Reported by:||Olly Betts||Owned by:||Olly Betts|
Description (last modified by )
This ticket is to track the issues remaining to solve before the SWIG Perl bindings are a complete replacement for the XS ones.
"$it"doesn't work in SWIG, while in XS it dereferences (for TermIterator and ValueIterator at least). I did some digging last year and it seemed there was some problematic interaction with eq/ne which I didn't get to the bottom of.
~"Stringify" is also missing for subclasses of Error (which in the XS version I'm using in 1.2.4 to give backwards compatibility for cases which were still throwing string exceptions in 1.2.3).~ ~XS version has simple anon-sub wrappers for MatchDecider and ExpandDecider. SWIG doesn't support directors for Perl in current releases (though there's work on a branch). But perhaps we can support these simple wrappers without needing directors.~ ~The SWIG-generated version is fussier about what sort of scalars you pass - for example, if an integer is expected, passing a string containing an integer or floating point number doesn't work, at least in some cases.~ Now documented at least.
One option is to deprecate the stringify stuff and make the switch at the start of the next release series.
