Supported database versions and options

The DBD::SearchServer module supports PCDOCS/Fulcrum SearchServer, versions 2.x thru 3.5.

Fulcrum SearchServer is a very powerful text-retrieval system with a SQL interface. You should not expect to find a full-fledged SQL RDBMS here. Refer to the product documentation for details about the query language.
