Subject: A small correction in the Quick Start page of Terrier website
I guess there is a small correction needed in the QuickStart page for
installing and running terrier.
Its under the Subheading "Retrieval" point no.2 (which should be 6 actually)
2. Now we will perform retrieval again but this time we enable query
expansion (QE) by using the "-r" parameter. See Information Retrieval Wiki
page on Query Expansion <http://ir.dcs.gla.ac.uk/wiki/QueryExpansion> for
more information about QE. Note that your index must have a direct index
structure to support QE. A direct index is built by not built by default by
single-pass indexing (see Configuring
more information). Afterwards we can run the evaluation again by using
trec_terrier.sh with the "-e" parameter.
The first line says "-r" parameter . But it should be "-q", if I am right.
It would be nice if you can number the points under the "Retrieval" section
correctly. As you could see its not ordered right now.
