Montezuma Review, and Thanks

gez fry

Robert Uhl has a preliminary review of Montezuma.

The API is mostly well thought-out, although there are a few quibbles I have.

All in all, for a 0.1.1 release Montezuma is pretty cool; there's a lot of potential there. If your project needs this type of search capability, it's worth taking a look.

Also, I forgot to thank some people whose code is included as part of Montezuma: I used Peter Seibel's META-inspired parser, Xach Beane's heap implementation, and Franz Inc.'s Porter stemmer.

The heap implementation in Timer 0.4.0 has some bugs that I fixed when porting it to sbcl. If you haven't found them already have a look at src/code/timer.lisp in the sbcl source tree.

Where is the www home for Peter Seibel's parser? I can't find it on cliki.net, in the example code for his book, or anywhere else on his web page.

I am a little surprised that my heap implementation has been used anywhere else. I copied it almost line-for-line from CLR(S).

Well, I'm very lazy.
