IWordBreaker interface

[Indexing Service is no longer supported as of Windows XP and is unavailable for use as of Windows 8. Instead, use Windows Search for client side search and Microsoft Search Server Express for server side search.]

The IWordBreaker interface is a language-specific language resource component. The word breaker parses text and identifies individual words and phrases. The word breaker is used in background processes and must be optimized for both throughput and minimal use of resources.
