** Introduction

Montezuma is a text search engine library for Lisp based on the Ferret
library[1] for Ruby, which is itself based on the Lucene library[2]
for Java.

[2] http://lucene.apache.org/

** Requirements

Montezuma 1.0 has been tested with SBCL 1.0.55 (Linux/x86) and CCL 1.6-r14469M
(Linux x86).

Montezuma requires the CL-PPCRE[1] and CL-FAD[2] libraries.

The only implementation-dependent code in Montezuma is in
src/util/mop.lisp.  To add support for another implementation may be
as simple as adding one line to the definition of the CLASS-SLOTS
function and one to SLOT-DEFINITION-NAME.
