Simple search facility

I recently built a simple search facility for my Citydesk website.  If you're interested you can read about it at http://w-uh.com/index.cgi/articles/030208-simple_search.html...

Looks like the discussion group software appended my elipsis (...) to the end of the URL.  It is just http://w-uh.com/index.cgi/articles/030208-simple_search.html

Very neat and QUICK! How many pages does it search through now?

I just use www.atomz.com

the free search is on there, but buried.

Jorgen - I have about 75 pages right now.  Not much of a test!  Korn shell and grep are definitely not the highest performance way to go, but for the number of pages I'm going to generate, this should last me a long time.  When I get up to 10,000 pages, I'll rewrite in C++ :) 

I'm running RedHat 7.2 on a PII 200MHz.

I use a free asp/javascript search engine from http://www.webwizguide.info . It works very well on several CD/non-CD sites that I manage - the largest beeing around 500 pages. But it does not give you the smart extract of contents that your solution provides. I'm impressed.

I'm using Perlfectsearch (www.perlfect.com). This is a free perl script. Can also do word/pdf with some filters (require compiling). Very fast, and I'm very happy with them.

It took a bit of PHP to integrate it in the Citydesk template.
