    Hi I have a lot of data that is in a TEXT file which are numbers does
    anyone have a good suggestion for indexing TEXT numbers (zip codes,
    other codes, dollar amounts, quantities, etc). since Lucene and other
    indexers are really optimized for Alpha character indexing. What
    approaches are typically taken in computer science for example to index

    text numbers..hash maps or something else ??

    Thank you,

    I don't see any question here about the C language. If you are
    looking for an algorithm, I would suggest asking in

    Once you have selected an algorithm, if you have problems writing a
    standard C program to implement it, then ask for help here.
