muscat Functions


This extension provides an interface to the Muscat 3.6 search system. Muscat doesn't exist anymore, but the » Xapian project may provide you with a good alternative.


This extension is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this extension -- including the names of its functions and anything else documented about this extension -- may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this extension at your own risk.


These functions are only available if PHP was configured with --with-muscat[=DIR].
