Re: Oracle 8i to mySQL full text search issues.

Hi Nick,

What I meant was that in my oracle DB you can perform a full text search on a column in your table that simply contains the URL of the document be it local or 3rd party. Oracle then creates an index on those documents specified in that field so you don't actually need to have the document text in the table (cool eh). The documents can be .HTML, .DOC, .PDF etc. Is this clear?

I realize mySQL does not have this type of functionality so as a work around I would have to somehow get the document text into the text field. This is my problem. You mentioned that you could do this with PHP? I'd love to see how. I've looked at other languages including antipdf and antiword but still can't find anything that would work. Do you know of anything?
