N2 Lexica is a simple and easy to use content management system for electronic documents like TIFF images, Adobe PDF, HTML, XML and Microsoft office documents such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It is capable of indexing terabytes of data and performing intelligent searches using a simple syntax.

How N2 Lexica works

  • N2 Lexica can instantly search terabytes of text because it builds a search index that stores the location of each word in a document.
  • Indexing is easy. Simply select folders or entire drives to index and N2 Lexica does the rest.
  • N2 Lexica automatically recognizes and supports all popular file formats and never alters original files.
  • A single index can hold over a terabyte of text (billions of documents).
  • N2 Lexica can also create and search with a single request over an unlimited number of indexes.

Relevancy Ranking:

Documents that match the query are ranked based on the number of occurrence in the document and the number of documents that have the term. In advanced searches it can even rank matches based on the proximity of key words to each other.

Phrase Search:

Helps in finding the documents containing the exact phrase. E.g. “to each his own” finds documents containing the exact phrase to each his own

Boolean Search :

Can make use of operators AND/OR/NOT E.g. Vacation OR Hawaii finds documents containing either the word Vacation or the word Hawaii

Group search :

Performs search by combining several search techniques E.g. (SoluSoft OR Ahmedabad) AND website finds documents containing the words SoluSoft or Ahmedabad and website

Fuzzy search :

Finds search terms even if they are misspelled with the help of “~” operator. Fuzziness can be adjusted within the range of 0 – 1. Default fuzziness value is 0.5. E.g. roam~ finds documents containing the words like foam, roams etc.

Wildcard Search :

Supports “?” to hold a single letter place and “*” to hold multiple letter space. E.g. test* finds documents containing the words test, tests or tester. test finds documents containing the words text or test.

Field search :

When searching, you can either specify a field, or use the default field. The field names and default field is implementation specific. You can search any field by typing the field name followed by a colon ":" and then the term you are looking for. E.g. let's assume a N2 Lexica index contains field “title”. If you want to find the document entitled "The Right Way" you can enter title: “The Right Way"

Range search :

Allows one to match documents whose field(s) values are between the lower and upper bound specified by the Range Query. Range Queries can be inclusive or exclusive of the upper and lower bounds. E.g. mod_date:[20020101 TO 20030101] will find documents whose mod_date fields have values between 20020101 and 20030101, inclusive.
