[ic] SQL + search_region

Hi all,

We're currently using action maps to strip arguments out of a string like:


, turning them into an IC search and then using a search_region page to 
display the results.

This works OK up to a point, but for complex searches the action map 
starts to get a bit unweildy as we hit the limits of the built in IC 
search system.

So for complex searches we now use direct sql queries which are faster 
and much more flexible. However because they are embedded in the results 
page, it makes maintainance more difficult.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get the best of both worlds and use 
a _real_ sql query to display results in a search_region page?
