Member Function Documentation

§ score_one()

float meta::index::pivoted_length::score_one ( const score_data sd)
sdthe score_data for this query

Implements meta::index::ranking_function.

§ save()

void meta::index::pivoted_length::save ( std::ostream &  out) const

Saves the ranker to a stream.

This should save the ranker's id, followed by any parameters needed for reconstruction.

Implements meta::index::ranker.
