Indirect reference generation
Automatic indirect key generation
- The new
-GENERATE_INDIRECT will invoke
automatic generation of indirect data keys.
Use of indirect data can greatly reduce Thor
database size and Merlin search times.
Indirect referencing has always be good for computers;
now it's convienent for humans.
- The options
combined with datatype specifications
allow precise control over automatic key generation.
- Automatically generated indirect keys obey all the datatree
conventions including subfield delimiters (~).
- The key generation uses a particularly clever quadruple
hash scheme which is fast and efficient in space.
