recoll-1.27.12p1 – full text search application


Recoll is a full text search application, which means that it finds your data
by content rather than by external attributes (like the file name). You specify
words (terms) which should or should not appear in the text you are looking for,
and receive in return a list of matching documents, ordered so that the most
relevant documents will appear first.

You do not need to remember in what file or email message you stored a given
piece of information. You just ask for related terms, and the tool will return a
list of documents where these terms are prominent, in a similar way to Internet
search engines.

Full text search applications try to determine which documents are most relevant
to the search terms you provide. Computer algorithms for determining relevance
can be very complex, and in general are inferior to the power of the human mind
to rapidly determine relevance. The quality of relevance guessing is probably
the most important aspect when evaluating a search application. Recoll relies on
the Xapian probabilistic information retrieval library to determine relevance.
