I'm trying to achieve a web-based Google-like search engine for users wishing to search a particular library of books in the database. For example, if the book were the King James Bible (no fears of copyright infractions here), the user might enter the following to search for every verse in the Bible which matched:
(savior OR saviour OR christ OR jesus OR messiah OR "prince of peace" OR "son of god" OR "son of man") AND (michael OR archangel OR prince OR king)
...and the code must convert that search query into the appropriate results list from the MySQL database to give back to the user. But the tricky part is reshaping those search terms into a MySQL-compatible select query, which is what my code here can do.
