Ah I missed this email. I agree with Teodor that this is not the best
way to implement this functionality. At the time I was in a bit of hurry
to have something better than the default one and just hacked this. And
if we want to have this functionality across languages and parsers it
will be better to be implemented in the general framework.
The patch takes into account the corner case of overlap. Here is the
code for that
// start check
if (!startHL && *currentpos >= startpos)
startHL = 1;
The headline generation will not start until currentpos has gone past
You can also check how this headline function is working at my website
indiankanoon.com. Some example queries are murder, freedom of speech,
freedom of press etc.
Should I develop the patch for the current cvs head of postgres?
