Description Steve Coile 2000-07-12 14:19:08 UTC
Search form inserts spaces into keywords, rendering searches invalid. 
Under conditions I can't quite pin-down, the search feature on the public
site will separate the last character of a keyword from the remainder of
the word by a space, rendering the term meaningless.  This appears to
happen only when multiple keywords are supplied.  For instance, try
performing a search for "ibm suse".  Note that the results reflect a search
for "ib m sus e".

Comment 1 Paul Lindner 2000-07-17 17:31:41 UTC
Looks like a bug in Text::Balanced, test case:

perl -MText::Balanced -e '$s = ("ibm suse" =~ /^(.*)/)[0]; @words =
Text::Balanced::extract_multiple($s); print join(",",@words)' ;

outputs:

ib,m sus,e

ugh....
