       Search::InvertedIndex::DB::Mysql	- A MySQL database interface object
       for Search::InvertedIndex

	 use Search::InvertedIndex::DB::Mysql;

	 my $db	= Search::InvertedIndex::DB::Mysql->new({
		     -db_name => 'searchdb',
		    -hostname => '',
		    -username => 'dbuser',
		    -password => 'dbuserpw',
		  -table_name => 'indextablename',
		   -lock_mode => 'EX' });

	 my $inv_map = Search::InvertedIndex->new({ -database => $db });

	 my $query = Search::InvertedIndex::Query->new(...);
	 my $result = $inv_map->search({ -query	=> $query });

	 my $update = Search::InvertedIndex::Update->new(...);
	 my $result = $inv_map->update({ -update => $update });


       An interface allowing Search::InvertedIndex to store and	retrieve data
       from Mysql database tables. All of the data is stored in	a single
       table, which will be created automatically if it	does not exist when
       the new method is called.

       The new method takes up to six parameters, two of which are required.

	   Mysql database name.	Required.

	   Table within	the database to	use. *CAUTION* If this table exists,
	   the clear method will erase the contents WITHOUT verifying that the
	   table contains data the module understands. If you point the	module
	   to an existing table	you do so at your own risk! Required.

	   Mysql database host.	Default: database server is on the local

	   User	for connecting to the Mysql server. The	user must have
	   appropriate authority for the operations you	are performing or
	   Mysql may complain.	Default: none.

	   Password for	the User. Default: none.

	   Locking status for the database table. EX, SH, or UN. EX will
	   attempt to obtain a WRITE lock on the table,	SH a READ lock,	and UN
	   will	not request one	at all.	Tables may be created and modified in
	   any mode, but EX is obviously recommended.

       Michael Cramer <>, based on
       Search::InvertedIndex::DB::DB_File_SplitHash by Jerilyn Franz.

       This module is not tested during	installation due to its	need for MySQL
       support in Perl and associated access permissions and so	on.

       You *MUST* have the DBI and DBD::mysql modules installed	to be able to
       use this	module.

       Theoretically, someone could use	this module as a starting point	for
       creating	support	for all	kinds of DBI supported databases.
