I have 3.2GB of plain text documents stored as .txt files (they are converted pdf files). A total of ~260,000 files. I do not wish to store them in the MariaDB database for various reasons.
Can I get manticore to index these files off disk directly by providing a reference to the file location? → either using a plain or realtime table? … or do I need to use realtime and open and read the document myself and shove the text in as part of an SQL insert into manticore?
If the latter this then begs the question about paramaterised queries as the docs clearly contain many sql busting chars.
Thank you muchly.
p.s. I am looking to replace Elasticsearch (NastySearch I call it)
