Data Storage

+ - Database file system - do any useful ones exist?

sammyp42 writes "I did a very basic and preliminary search for database file systems. I saw a lot of articles and postings about the benefits and advantages of DBFS's, but I couldn't find any projects that were trying to implement a DBFS. I am very interested in either: a) starting my own open source project to implement a DBFS, or b) get invovled with some existing project. My goal here is to create something that will ultimately have an advanced file explorer view on top that will help people sort, store and archive their files and data (data including RAW data, not just application data) more easily; basic application support (Office, Media apps, etc...) is essential, but not the primary focus for initial deployment. Making my parents, relatives and friends computing lives easier is my primary goal. WinFS seems to be headed in this direction, but it's too proprietary for my taste, plus I don't work for MS (or any other corporate entities developing such FS's). I think the OSI model is the way to go here. Anyone here can point me to anything worthwhile? If you have similar interests, let me know and maybe we can organize something together."

At the risk of sounding redundant/irrelevant, thats called stemming. It brings any word into its "root" form. See http://www.comp.lancs.ac.uk/computing/research/ste mming/general/

Also, regex queries would be very difficult to implement on search engines (if not impossible), coz the nature of search is different. In every regex query, the pattern is the one which is pre-processed, while in search engines, the text is pre-processed. Because of the different nature of pre-processing involved, regex on search engines might not be possible.
