Simple Web Indexing for Stupid Humans (Extended)

In the current version (v. 1.3.2), you can compile the indexer with or without a spider. Default setup in the config files is to index for file systems, as I recall. Also, look for AutoSwish -- a basic CGI interface for making your index searchable using a web browser. The entire thing takes about 10 minutes to setup if you know what you are doing. First time might be an hour or so...

There is somebody on the list, <swish-e_at_sunsite.Berkeley.EDU>, maintaining an NT version which came out with v 1.3.1 or v 1.3.2. I have not used it, and it is maybe not stored on the UC Berkeley website above, but there is undoubtedly a link to it there.

For an example of AutoSwish/SWISH-E look at:
