[Perlfect-search] partial matches?

 Aside from the joker_search, is there any easy or feasible way to have
search.pl return results on partial words (or at least likely
candidates)?

 For instance, have the user-provided term "netscap" match the indexed
term "netscape"?

 I'd like to accomplish this without having to require the user to
provide wildcards anywhere in the terms.
