Subject "begins with" searches
Date Mon, 26 Oct 2009 02:13:07 GMT
We need to offer "begins with" type searches, e.g. a search for "surname, f" will retrieve
"surname, firstname", "surname, f", "surname fm" etc.

Ideally, the user would be able to enter something like "surname f*".

However, wildcards don't work on phrase searches, nor do range searches.

Any suggestions as to how best to search for "begins with" phrases; or, how to best configure
solr to support such searches?
