Abstract

[Issue] When you do a text search operation, such as an auction item search, WEB site search, and database text search, you will sometimes have so many hit items returned as the result of search operation, because search keywords used in the search operation have sometimes wider meaning than expected. Thus, within such results, there would exist many unwanted hit items which need to be eliminated. Naturally, this phenomenon prevents quicker pinpointing to required information. Also, you need quite cumbersome squeezed search operations until final satisfaction. For example, a typical text search operation is as follows: (1) Review searched texts (2) Record unwanted keyword/wanted Keyword (memorize or take memo)
