[sword-devel] How does the "diatheke" front end have search abilities? Is it using CLucene?

AFAIK, diatheke itself cannot generate a lucene index for a module.

You can specify the search type as *-s lucene* to ensure that it will make
use of any existing index that the user may have already generated from
another front-end such as Xiphos.

Is my understanding correct?

btw. For modules with lots of markup such as the CrossWire KJV, diatheke
searches are very slow.

I rarely use diatheke for this purpose. More often to just output a
specified passage or verse, or .... ?

Best regards,
