NAME

Lucy::Search::SortSpec - Specify a custom sort order for search results.

SYNOPSIS

my $sort_spec = Lucy::Search::SortSpec->new(
    rules => [
        Lucy::Search::SortRule->new( field => 'date' ),
        Lucy::Search::SortRule->new( type  => 'doc_id' ),
    ],
);
my $hits = $searcher->hits(
    query     => $query,
    sort_spec => $sort_spec,
);

DESCRIPTION

By default, searches return results in order of relevance; SortSpec allows you to indicate an alternate order via an array of SortRules.

Fields you wish to sort against must be sortable.

For a stable sort (important when paging through results), add a sort-by-doc rule as the last SortRule.

CONSTRUCTORS
