What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



hw_getobjectbyftquery — Executes a full-text search on the whole database and returns the object IDs of matching objects.


array hw_getobjectbyftquery(hw_link, query, max_hits);
resource hw_link: Connection ID to Hyperwave server
string query: Search query (full-text query syntax)
int max_hits: Maximum number of hits to return


Indexed array of object IDs; FALSE on error


hw_getobjectbyftquery() executes a full-text query on the database and returns an indexed array of the object IDs of any matching objects. If max_hits is -1 all hits are returned; otherwise, the search stops after finding max_hits hits.

If no matching objects are found, the empty array is returned.


PHP 4 since 4.0.4


Example 489. Full-text search in the whole database

/* Find all object IDs of objects containing the word 'Infinar'. */
$ret = hw_getobjectbyftquery($hw_link, 'Infinar', -1);
echo "Return type: " . gettype($ret) . ": ";

/* Same thing, but limit to the first five hits. */
$ret = hw_getobjectbyftquery($hw_link, 'Infinar', 5);
echo "Return type: " . gettype($ret) . ": ";
