kes.exe build_index Academic.schema Academic.data Academic.index

Academic.index file, which we will use when we are hosting the service.
When running the command, the application will continuously output the status, which can look like the following:
00:00:00 Input Schema: \Programs\KES\Example\Academic.schema 00:00:00 Input Data: \Programs\KES\Example\Academic.data 00:00:00 Output Index: \Programs\KES\Example\Academic.index 00:00:00 Loading synonym file: Keyword.syn 00:00:00 Loaded ...
