5.10 Nprefix

The nprefix module provides a strategy similar to ‘prefix’, but which returns the specified range of bytes. For example, the statement

MATCH dict nprefix skip#count#string

where skip and count are positive integer numbers, returns at most count headwords whose prefix matches string, omitting first skip unique matches.

The module is loaded using this simple statement:

load-module nprefix;
