Best way to code a search engine (across my database)?
#1

[eluser]Aquillyne[/eluser]
I have a few tables and I'd like a user to be able to pull rows from them if his keywords match in certain fields.

Two things:

1) If the user types more than 1 keyword, what logic should I use to give him the best results? Lets assume he's only searching for one thing, of course.

2) How can I account for spelling mistakes? A lot of my rows contain words with apostrophes in them, or Italian words, which might easily be mispelled (e.g. no apostrophe). I want to somehow run a non-literal search, just a close-matching search.

Any ideas?
