Dear sir,

I have found plugging compression of posting list on terrier, but not found the codec of lexicon.
So can you tell me what is the lexicon structure of terrier? If it is stored in raw form of LexiconEntry? how does Terrier cope with various-sized term string, fixed length or ?

The lexicon is not compressed. We used Writable implementation of the Text and the LexiconEntry. These are guaranteed to have a fixed size. See FixedSizeWritableFactory etc. We then to a binary search upon the written lexicon.
