[EP-tech] Re: Search API and name fields (or compound)



Hi Adam,

Thanks for your answer.

Your script will be useful to make stats for the library staff.

For what I wanted to do, I have found another way.
I am not sure if it is a stable solution, but it works on our data...

    my $search = new EPrints::Search( session=>$session,
    dataset=>$dataset );

    #---- 1. first find items where the author field is NOT null

    $search->add_field(
       fields => $dataset->get_field('author'),
       match => 'SET',
       value => '' # value is needed even if it is not really used...
    );

    my $authors_OK = $search->perform_search;

    #---- 2. And substract it to the list of all items

    my $list = $dataset->search(); # All items

    $list = $list->remainder( $authors_OK );

BTW, it could be useful to have new match methods to use in scripts 
(there would be of little use to build search forms). By instance :

  * NULL => performs sql "IS NULL"
  * BLANK => is null || equals empty string
  * ZERO =>  is null || equals empty string || equals 0
  * and the negative forms NONULL, NOBLANK, NOZERO...

Best regards,
GF

You could do worse than start with the SCONUL report and modify it to do what you want (save the IDs of items with no author, rather than counting the documents).
