        my $term = Plucene::Index::Term->new({
                        field => $field_name,
                        text  => $text,

        # etc


A Term represents a word from text, and is the unit of search. It is composed of two elements, the text of the word, as a string, and the name of the field that the text occured in, as a string.

Note that terms may represent more than words from text fields, but also things like dates, email addresses, urls, etc.


eq / ne / lt / gt / ge / le

Exactly what you would think they are.
