public final class: Term
All Implemented Interfaces:
A Term represents a word from text. This is the unit of search. It is
composed of two elements, the text of the word, as a string, and the name of
the field that the text occurred in, an interned string.
Note that terms may represent more than words from text fields, but also
things like dates, email addresses, urls, etc.

public final int compareTo(Term other)
Compares two terms, returning a negative integer if this
term belongs before the argument, zero if this term is equal to the
argument, and a positive integer if this term belongs after the argument.
The ordering of terms is first by field, then by text.
public Term createTerm(String text)
Optimized construction of new Terms by reusing same field as this Term
- avoids field.intern() overhead
public boolean equals(Object obj)
public final String field()
Returns the field of this term, an interned string. The field indicates
the part of a document which this term came from.
public int hashCode()
final void set(String fld,
Resets the field and text of a Term.
public final String text()
Returns the text of this term. In the case of words, this is simply the
text of the word. In the case of dates and other types, this is an
encoding of the object as a string.
