If you have a set of records that are not expected to change over time you may can build your database without record IDs. This indexing method uses less space than the other methods and is simple to use.
To use this method, you simply omit the
for the group of files that you index. To add a set of records you use
zebraidx with the
update command. The
update command will always add all of the records that it
encounters to the index - whether they have already been indexed or
not. If the set of indexed files change, you should delete all of the
index files, and build a new index from scratch.
Consider a system in which you have a group of text files called
That group of records should belong to a Z39.50 database called
zebra.cfg file will suffice:
profilePath: /usr/local/idzebra/tab attset: bib1.att simple.recordType: text simple.database: textbase
Since the existing records in an index can not be addressed by their IDs, it is impossible to delete or modify records when using this method.
