[mkgmap-dev] multi-word street search

Andrzej, I couldn't find the description of the "problem" this aims to
fix but if I am guessing right it will add individual words from street
names into the index so they can be found when searching for an address?

Will this not add millions of entries for "The" and "Road" and similar
articles, prepositions and road types? It will depend on the language as
to what is written separately and what is joined to other words. In
English/French everything is separate but in Dutch/German the rules are
of course difference. To start with, does anyone have any idea how we
could implement a language-dependent stop-word list (words to be ignored

>> Hi, I have decided to try simple solution for this problem. I have modified addStreet() procedure in file imgfmtappmdrMDRFile.java. While I don't know all ramification of this change, search seems to work as expected, see attached picture form Mapsource. Attached patch is created half-manually, I hope it will work in your environment. -- Best regards, Andrzej
