Abstract:

The evaluation of the ROUT Retrieval of Unformatted Text document retrieval system consisted of a detailed examination of various retrieval errors in the context of different queryprocessing methods. Many of the methods used to extend the power of the basic coordinate indexing mechanism were compared. Three different evaluation techniques were used in the study. Based on the analysis, conclusions were drawn about the relative merits of several query- processing methods, and some general comments were made about the limitations of coordinate indexing as applied to the document retrieval problem.
